Making the World a Better Place, One Shipment at a Time

By: | at 02:14 PM | Channel(s): Breakbulk & Projects  

In August of 2013, SHIFT Freight was born with the mission to transform the stagnant transportation industry as pioneers in the less-than-truckload space. Full of ambitious goals and an enlightened perspective on corporate social responsibility, they didn’t waste any time and quickly started a market-leading give back program where customers can dedicate shipments to their favorite causes and SHIFT donates to that cause.

Partnering with only the best third-party logistics companies (3PLs) in the industry, SHIFT is one of the select carriers to offer such a program at the core of the company’s operations. As an innovative company centered on a dynamic customer experience enabled by technology and valued partnerships, this initiative is just one more way the carrier is changing what customers expect from their carrier partners.

“As leaders in the transportation industry, we take the causes our customers care about across the country seriously,” said SHIFT Freight Vice President, Tommy Skinner. “We started this program because we saw all the great support companies like Worldwide Express, Coyote Logistics and Echo Global Logistics give to causes they’re passionate about. It’s no longer enough to just be a business; we have to think about how what we do can be used to make our communities better.”

Monthly participation in the program tripled in December 2013, which has encouraged SHIFT to further invest in the program and add new causes on a weekly basis at the request of their customers. SHIFT’s customers have proactively dedicated shipments to over two dozen organizations through the program, and SHIFT expects that number to more than double in 2014.

“The growth in popularity of SHIFT The World has been amazing to see. The program has grown exponentially and we don’t expect that to slow down in 2014,” added Skinner.
