TORONTO, Ont. — Trucks For Change Network, a nonprofit association of leading Canadian trucking firms helping community charities with donated transportation services, has launched MOVEmatrix, an online freight matching tool developed for the exclusive use of its member trucking and charity partners.
“MOVEmatrix offers our members a quick and secure way to find and respond to charity needs which match their available resources,” said Pete Dalmazzi, president and founder of Trucks For Change Network. “It has all the features to become the one-stop transportation marketplace for charitable organizations across Canada.”
MOVEmatrix was developed in a partnership between Trucks For Change Network and The Aidmatrix Foundation, a Dallas-based firm specializing in supply chain management technology for humanitarian relief.
“Trucks For Change Network’s mission of connecting private industry with community charities is a creative and exciting application for our technology,” said Keith Thode, chief operating officer for The Aidmatrix Foundation. “We’re proud to add them to our family of nonprofit partners.”
“Many trucking companies already generously support their communities,” said Ontario Trucking Association president David Bradley. “Trucks For Change Network and its Movematrix technology will help them to do so more efficiently and at a lower operating cost. It’s a win-win situation.”
Canadian trucking firms and registered charities can apply for membership in Trucks For Change Network by visiting Truckforchange.org .
