PLS will donate 100% of Profits from TX Moves to the American Red Cross the Week of September 4th

Cranberry Twp., PA, August 30, 2017 – PLS Logistics Services, a leading 3rd party logistics provider, has committed to donate 100% of profits from its Texas freight moves for the week of September 4th to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.  

PLS is teaming up with the American Red Cross and GoFundMe to raise money for the affected communities. PLS will donate 100% of the profits from all Texas freight moves next week to the American Red Cross.

“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,” says President and CEO Greg Burns. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the millions of people impacted by Hurricane Harvey.”

PLS employees and customers can donate to the American Red Cross through the company’s GoFundMe page titled “PLS Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund”.  Alternatively, any shipper using PLS trucking services the week of Sept. 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.

While Hurricane Harvey has forced the closure of the PLS Houston office, all employees have been verified as safe. In the next several weeks, the PLS team will work tirelessly to help our customers maintain their delivery schedules, stay informed and assist them in any way possible.
