A Hurricane, tornado, earthquake or other natural disaster can be devastating. In times of crisis, providing disaster relief logistics is critical and FreightCenter is prepared to help.
When disaster strikes and people are in need of help, humanity responds in kind. Hurricanes and earthquakes, blizzards and tornadoes have tested our resilience and resourcefulness for millennia, and in the face of it all, we get through it together—locally, nationally, globally.
But imagine the logistics of planning relief when flooding is rampant, roads are blocked or washed out, and the power is down. Effective response is three-fold: Whether for yourself, your family or your business, know what to do before, during and after a catastrophe hits.
FreightCenter can, of course, plan, manage and execute shipping services for these bulk supplies; but did you know they can also help your business or organization move products away from danger zones, as in the event of an evacuation? Talk to a FreightCenter logistics professional. They can answer your questions, offer suggestions for preparedness and supply chain management, and broker transport services according to your needs.
In emergency situations, third-party logistics companies like FreightCenter can be valuable resources; no matter the circumstance, it’s our business to make connections happen. So whether aid organizations are trying to stock or distribute food, water, and medical supplies, or businesses are trying to salvage products before an impending disaster, our specially trained logistics experts can take the guesswork and stress out of getting your freight from Point A to Point B—and during some of the most unpredictable, stressful situations imaginable. Here are a few ways FreightCenter can help.
In times of crisis, relief organizations like the Red Cross and Direct Relief International are often at the forefront of ensuring people’s basic food, shelter and medical needs are met. Governmental entities, like FEMA and the Small Business Administration, are also there to help people recover. And when it’s time to rebuild, Habitat for Humanity and Without Borders are just a couple charities that help families get back on their feet again.
