Coyote Logistics brings supply chain together amid COVID-19
Coyote Logistics has launched a campaign centered around recognising the members of the supply chain that are helping others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With widespread disruption caused throughout the supply chain, supply chain professionals worldwide have displayed amazing dedication to helping those on the front lines get the help they need.
The campaign, #GreenMeansGiveThanks Campaign, will allow Coyote to bring members of its supply chain together. Through the launch, the company is not just showing their gratitude, but also inviting members of the public to easily share their appreciation for these dedicated individuals with their #GreenMeansGiveThanks submission form.
Following the launch of the campaign Jonathan Sisler, Coyote’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “I’d like to sincerely thank all front-line workers and first responders around the world. From truck drivers, dock workers and supply chain professionals to doctors, nurses and grocery store employees, your tireless work has helped to save countless lives. If you would like to share your gratitude for these dedicated individuals, I invite you to do so through this campaign. It’s a simple way to show your appreciation for those so critical to the fight against the coronavirus disease.”
There are several members of Coyote’s network that have stepped up in significant ways amidst the coronavirus, such as:
Uline - The firm quickly assembled supplies to set up coronavirus testing kit stations across the United States.
Load One LLC - Load One took proactive measures to ensure drivers in their 400-truck fleet had easier access to critical cleaning supplies.
Crocs - Crocs is giving away 10,000 pairs of shoes on their website every day. In addition, they are donating more than 100,000 pairs of shoes to hospitals to allow for “as much product as possible to get in the hands that need it most,” according to its press release.
Performance Food Group - The organisation is supporting Coyote by providing 70 pallets of donated food to New York City via their private fleet, with The UPS Foundation covering all transportation costs.
Eastern Kille Distillery - The company transitioned production from spirits to cleaning supplies. Coyote is working with the distillery to create thousands of care packages for drivers. This includes hand sanitizer, food and other resources to make drivers’ experiences on the road safer and easier.
