September 26, 2017 – Atlanta, Georgia
Congratulations to Mr. Kirk Hellofs, V.P Operations & Business Development on receiving ALAN’s (American Logistics Aid Network) Inaugural Humanitarian Award for Employee Engagement. Kirk was honored at the Counsel of Supply Chain Professionals Management Conference in Atlanta in front of 3,000 of his peers in the Logistics Industry. It recognizes the exceptional associates that States Logistics employs and their dedication to helping our community and the world.
One of the key elements for our recognition was the projects that we volunteered our services in our Inland Empire warehouse partnering with the American Logistics Aid Network & the Good 360 Organization. Our coordination of Transportation services & warehouse labor for the shipments; the pillow loads that went to Houston and the school supplies and shipments to Africa. These projects along with all the Volunteer Events that our Volunteerism Committee’s in California & Arizona coordinate and the selfless and generous efforts of the entire team at States Logistics Services has put us in the spotlight. “Tremendous work by all – it makes me very proud to work with such compassionate and wonderful people!” said Ryan Donovan, President States Logistics Services, Inc.
