CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Our commitment to you and to each member of our team extends to our community. Through our corporate social responsibility programs, we direct time and resources towards education with a belief that by providing individuals with the opportunity to learn, we can transform lives.

Through our internship program, we mentor and train college students from California State University, Long Beach on how to deliver excellent global transportation and sourcing services. We show them how to value and nurture a partnership network that spans the globe. We also work to provide them with practical skills and the confidence they need to be successful in their lives and perhaps, in the transportation logistics and sourcing industries. Our commitment to education doesn’t stop there. Our team is also committed to volunteering in schools and giving to the communities our clients serve.

Work with partners that care. Email or call us today at 562-283-6900.

Global Guidance. Trusted Partnership.
