Transportation Insight Partnership with Samaritan’s Feet Featured in IndustryWeek Online
HICKORY, NC (December 10, 2014) – Leading manufacturing publication IndustryWeek recently featured an article on globally-recognized enterprise third-party logistics (3PL) provider Transportation Insight and its strong partnership with non-profit organization Samaritan’s Feet. Highlighted in the December 2014 issue of its online publication, IndustryWeek Online, the article explores the 3PL’s relationship with Samaritan’s Feet and its immeasurable positive impact on the company, its associates and the global community.
Founder and Chairman Paul Thompson offers insight on how instilling a culture of servant leadership is a key component of thriving companies.
“I think at the end of the day it changes the DNA of your company,” says Thompson. “You develop an internal DNA of an organization that is very different from the traditional corporate ‘every man for himself.’”
Samaritan’s Feet, a faith-based organization, is dedicated to stopping upwards of a million deaths due to foot parasites. Transportation Insight took on the role of “mission-oriented” partner to Samaritan’s Feet. The charity became a client of Transportation Insight, receiving services from the 3PL at no cost. In addition, Transportation Insight staff not only organizes an annual back-to-school shoe distribution event, but donates its time and service whenever Samaritan’s Feet receives a large-scale shoe donation.
“The workplace adopts an attitude of serving and becomes driven not by pursuit of success, but by the search for significance,” Thompson says of Transportation Insight employee engagement in philanthropic endeavors.
