GlobalTranz is a technology-facilitated freight logistics company with a customer base consisting of more than 25,000 shippers. Dedicated to giving back to the community and providing for people in need, GlobalTranzrecently organized a relief drive that will benefit individuals affected by the flooding in Louisiana during the early fall of 2016.
The company partnered with Pegasus Logistics Group to direct all donations to Mid City Redevelopment Alliance, Inc., an organization in Baton Rouge that is providing necessities to individuals who are most in need. The Louisiana flooding has displaced an overwhelming number of families and businesses and devastated many homes.
GlobalTranz invited members of the community to come to the office during operating hours to drop off their donations. Some of the requested items included school supplies, bottled water and sports drinks, toiletries, and tools for cleaning up after the water has fully receded.
In addition, the company asked for donations of construction supplies to fuel rebuilding efforts undertaken by Mid City Redevelopment Alliance, which has been helping revitalize the Baton Rouge area for more than 25 years. Everything from new sheetrock to lightly used appliances are needed to help individuals rebuild the parts of the lives that they lost to the floods.
