GTZ Blog Post, Homepage

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to express our gratitude for the many wonderful things in our lives. At GlobalTranz, we have a lot to be thankful for…

Customers

We work with over 25,000 shippers to transport goods of all commodities and sizes around the world. Learning about their products and developing logistics solutions that grow their business and our economy is what drives us. To all our customers, thank you for choosing GlobalTranz, we truly appreciate our partnership with you.

Employees

Our talented employees go above and beyond to support our customers, agents, and carriers while making a positive impact in their local communities. Their outstanding commitment to service and collaboration enables us to provide award-winning logistics solutions and technology. We are thankful to have the best team in the industry.

Agents

Our network of independent agents solves supply chain challenges and delivers innovative logistics solutions to a wide array of shippers. They take pride in doing the heavy lifting of freight management so companies can focus on growing their businesses. We are grateful for their expertise and dedication to helping shippers drive efficiencies in their supply chains.

Carriers and Drivers

There are 3.5 million trucking professionals across the country whose work is some of the most personally demanding and economically significant in the United States. We appreciate our network of carriers and truck drivers who work long hours, sacrificing personal time with family and friends, to safely move more than 10 billion tons of freight across 432 billion miles each year. They are the lifeblood of the supply chain.

Technology

Our technology enables our employees, agents, and carriers to intelligently optimize shipping operations and provide a strategic advantage. Automation and customization allow our teams to focus their time creating new ways to drive efficiencies and cost savings for shippers. The GlobalTranz TMS platform provides visibility to big data and, using machine learning systems, creates actionable intelligence that helps businesses forecast, plan, and execute their supply chain activities. We’re grateful that technology is at the forefront of our organization, and we’re proud to provide innovative solutions that are paving the future of supply chain management.

Community

As Hurricanes Harvey and Irma devastated parts of Houston, Florida, the Southeast United States, and Puerto Rico, communities came together to support those in need. The GlobalTranz CORE corporate responsibility team hosted a Hurricane Relief Drive to deliver food, water, toiletries, and supplies to the Houston Food Bank. We received donations from several businesses and partners in the logistics industry – a true display of community coming together to make a positive impact.

We’re also thankful for our logistics community and organizations like TIA, BiTA, and CSCMP. They connect supply chain and logistics industry professionals to develop collaborative solutions, standards, and technology that moves the industry forward.

On behalf of everyone at GlobalTranz, Happy Thanksgiving.
