Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Our thoughts go out to the communities braced for the arrival of Hurricane Dorian. Unfortunately, freak weather events are now commonplace - so much so that the logistics industry is already preparing for the effects of the hurricane.
As we report this week, the industry response association, ALAN, is calling for targeted help and the key message is that we can achieve more by working together than we can with individual acts of kindness. Sometimes, generous gestures, well-meant as they may be, do not actually help the victims on the ground and require so much administrative and operational effort that they become counterproductive.
If you want to help, read our story and follow the links.
