Today we celebrate Halloween and tomorrow is the start of the holiday shipping season!
Warehouse logistics companies are in a unique position to donate transportation, labor, space and aid in natural disasters. The Shippers Group has teamed up with the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) to provide relief efforts during the greatest times of need. In October, ALAN recognized these efforts by naming TSG as one of the 2018 Humanitarian Logistics Award recipients during the CSCMP EDGE Conference, Sept. 30 – Oct. 3 in Nashville, Tennessee.
“We are humbled to take action and support those in need when a natural disaster strikes. These are the communities of our employees and our customers, and we consider it our duty to help whenever and however we can,” says Rob Doyle, president of The Shippers Group.
When hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria unleashed devastation across Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, Good 360 rendered aid. The organization's mission is to help companies donate excess merchandise to charities instead of destroying it. The goods are critical necessities for folks recovering from very damaging and costly storms and include items such as shop vacs, diapers, and cleaning supplies.
