(Dieppe, NB) – The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA), in partnership with Trailer Wizards, recently made a generous contribution of $17,601.13 to the Trucks For Change Network (T4C), a national non-profit association of member trucking and logistics companies.
T4C, whose motto is “Filling Trucks, Fulfilling Needs”, provides a unique online charity-load posting tool which enables member carriers to find charity requests matching their available truck capacity, and to respond with offers of reduced-rate or donated service.
“The trucking industry has always actively supported charities. Our job is to make the process more efficient by finding the right carrier with the right equipment in the right place to help.” said Trucks For Change Network President Pete Dalmazzi. “Finding affordable transportation often makes the difference between a charity accepting donated goods or having them end up in landfill sites, so there’s an environmental benefit as well.”
Jean-Marc Picard, APTA’s executive director, added: “Trucks for Change’s goals are consistent with APTA’s goals of promoting an environmentally and socially responsible commercial trucking industry in Atlantic Canada. We are thrilled to support T4C’s efforts and encourage our members to participate.”
The APTA is the trusted and effective voice of the road transport industry in Atlantic Canada. With more than 320 members (commercial carriers, brokers, owner-operators and associated trades), we are an effective lobby and advocacy organization dedicated to the continued growth and strength of our industry.
