WINNIPEG, MB ‘“ Tuesday, July 30, 2013‘”The Manitoba Trucking Association (MTA) and Trucks For Change Network (T4C), a non-profit association of member trucking and logistics companies, announced today that they are joining forces to help support charities in Manitoba and across Canada with trucking services.

Members of Trucks For Change Network, founded in Ontario in 2011, are among the country’s leading highway carriers, with the motto ‘œFilling Trucks, Fulfilling Needs”.  T4C employs a unique online charity load-posting tool which allows member carriers to find charity requests which match their available truck capacity, and to respond with offers of reduced-rate or donated service.  T4C’s membership already includes several carriers with operations in Manitoba, which assist the Manitoba affiliates of national charities such as Food Banks Canada and Habitat For Humanity Canada. Its new partnership with MTA will accelerate its membership growth and its support of communities across the Province.

Trucks For Change Network President and founder Pete Dalmazzi says ‘œThe trucking industry has always actively supported charities.  Our job is to make the process more efficient by finding the right carrier with the right equipment in the right place to help”.  ‘œFinding affordable transportation often makes the difference between a charity accepting donated goods or having them end up in landfill sites, so there’s an environmental benefit as well.  We’re thrilled to have MTA’s endorsement, and we look forward to helping its members make a difference in communities across Manitoba.”

Bob Dolyniuk, MTA Executive Director commented ‘œT4C’s mission is consistent with MTA’s goal of promoting an environmentally and socially responsible commercial trucking industry in Manitoba”.  We are happy to endorse its efforts, and we encourage our members to participate”.

Membership in the Trucks For Change Network is strictly voluntary.   Carriers or charities wanting to learn more about T4C are invited to visit www.trucksforchange.org or contact Pete Dalmazzi at pete@trucksforchange.org or 905-844-8658.

Trucks For Change Network Inc. is a non-profit association of member trucking and logistics companies working to help communities and promote social responsibility within the trucking industry.  For more information please visit www.trucksforchange.org.
