The Shippers Group has been providing updates throughout the COVID-19 pandemic beginning in March 2020 with the purpose of informing associates and customers about our response based on the latest information provided by the Centers of Disease Control. With vaccines available to anyone over the age of 16 and over 40% of Americans now vaccinated, we are entering into a new phase. As a result, The Shippers Group will move our updates from bi-weekly to monthly.
Safety is our #1 priority at The Shippers Group, and April has been designated as First Aid and CPR month. While safety is always top-of-mind at TSG, specific importance is placed on First Aid and CPR during the month of April. Read on about the ways in which TSG is highlighting Heart-to-Heart month among associates.
The Shippers Group takes caring for our environment very seriously. As an Inbound Logistics Green 75 partner, we recycled 7.5 million pounds of cardboard, paper and plastic last year. Additionally, TSG is focused on energy efficiency and water conversation within our 16 distribution facilities. With more than 6.5 million square feet of warehouse space and hundreds of pieces of materials handling equipment, we are continuously looking for new ways to improve environmental sustainability.
