Fleet Advantage announced that it has been awarded one of the American Logistics Aid Network’s (ALAN) 2022 Humanitarian Logistics Awards in the category of Outstanding Contribution To Disaster Relief Efforts.
The company received the award through its Kids Around The Corner Foundation (KATC), which volunteers and donates a portion of its profits to various charitable causes, according to Fleet Advantage's news release.
Every year since 2017, ALAN’s Humanitarian Logistics Awards honors individuals and organizations that have demonstrated an ongoing and sustained commitment to helping others during and after disasters strike.
Fleet Advantage added that KATC has offered volunteer support aimed at several causes since 2014, including most recently collaborating with Trucking and Logistics Professionals for Ukraine to provide financial aid toward a Ukrainian humanitarian effort.
Fleet Advantage also nominated GP Transco for this Outstanding Contribution To Disaster Relief Efforts Award, which they won for raising more than $2 million for Ukrainian relief.
Additionally, the Outstanding Contribution To Disaster Relief Efforts Award recognized KATC’s response in 2020 to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic with the First Responders Children’s Foundation and the Jacksonville School of Autism. KATC also provided facial coverings to families of transportation professionals after the onset of COVID-19, and donated to the truckersfinalmile.org mission, according to Fleet Advantage.
“We are incredibly honored that the American Logistics Aid Network recognizes our charitable contributions to help families and children in need and inspire hope,” said Elizabeth Gomez, marketing manager for Fleet Advantage. “Fleet Advantage understands the importance of going beyond ‘business as usual’ each and every day and we look forward to continuing making an impact on the lives of many children and their families for many years to come.”
