Donating Logistics Services Amid a Logistical Nightmare

Challenge: In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan killed over 6,200 Filipinos and left nearly 2,000,000 homeless. The need for humanitarian aid was instant, urgent and widespread. The chaos was compounded by the near-annihilation of most nearby ports, making it difficult for ships to dock and distribute life-saving supplies.

Solution: Like thousands of businesses across the USA, Port Jersey Logistics knew it must help but, given the stunning level of disarray in the unprecedented natural disaster's aftermath, was unsure exactly how to assist. How could PJL offer its logistics equipment and expertise as expediently as possible to help those in need?

Results: Thankfully, a request soon came from the American Logistics Aid Network, which serves as an aggregator of logistics-related charitable need. Through ALAN, PJL knew aid would be expedited and effective, so Continental Logistics - PJL's freight brokerage division - quickly helped move three containers of American Red Cross materials overseas to aid victims.

About the Solution Provider: From storage and distribution to integrated logistics programs, Port Jersey Logistics offers 60 years of experience meeting supply chain requirements with state-of-the-art systems and facilities. PJL handles a full spectrum of products including grocery, specialty foods, alcoholic beverages, health and personal care products, electronics, ingredients and raw materials.
