On Thursday, third party logistics provider PLS Logistics Services, announced it has teamed up with the American Red Cross and GoFundMe to launch a crowdfunding campaign dedicated to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The company also revealed it is donating 100% of profits from its Texas freight moves for the week of September 4th to the cause. President and CEO of PLS, Greg Burns, stated:
“PLS has a large number of employees, shippers and trucking partners in Texas and Houston and we want to do our part to assist in the recovery efforts of this catastrophic storm. Our thoughts and prayers are with the millions of people impacted by Hurricane Harvey.”
PLS noted that employees and customers may donate to the American Red Cross through the company’s GoFundMe campaign, PLS Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Alternatively, any shipper using PLS trucking services the week of September 4th for Texas related freight will have 100% of profits from those shipments donated to the American Red Cross. Shippers can contact their local PLS Account Executive or their local PLS office with any Texas freight needs. With over 500 employees, the company’s goal is to raise funds from its employees, customers, and vendors in addition to the Company’s donation.
