SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - December 21, 2018 - This Christmas, Haulio launched
its inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event to show appreciation for
container truck drivers in Singapore. Despite forming the backbone of
Singapore's supply chain industry, truck drivers are often overlooked and
under-appreciated. Working around the clock in order to ensure containerised
goods reach their destinations on time, it is a lonely and thankless job that
often goes unnoticed. Coupled with long hours on the road, manoeuvring such a
heavy vehicle isn't an easy feat. The recent unfortunate accident involving an
overturned container and passenger car along PIE further highlights the dangers
and risks their jobs entail.
In light of the spirit of Christmas,
Haulio will be giving back through the distribution of welfare packs to 1,000
truck drivers as a token of appreciation for their hard work. The event will be
held on Saturday, 22nd December 2018 from 9AM-1PM at the CWT
Integrated depot located in Pioneer. Some of the items given out include
necessities like snacks, drinks and car fresheners. The items are kindly supported
by PSA Corporation, Meiji Seika, Lion Corporation, L'Oréal Group, Haw Par
Healthcare, Lam Soon Trading and Allswell Trading.
"At Haulio, we're committed to bringing
change not just to individual companies, but to the industry. Saying "thank
you" to the ones who make it all possible -- our truck drivers -- is just a small
part of what we want to do for them," said Alvin Ea, CEO of Haulio.
Since its inception in May
2017, Haulio has grown to be Singapore's largest haulage network, with over 65%
of hauliers already on the platform. With the tagline "Together, We Cargo Faster",
Haulio aspires to lead transformation in the industry by empowering stakeholders
and every member in the community, including the drivers, towards Industry 4.0.
Haulio is a centralized collaborative platform for the Container Haulage Industry, aiming to be the simplest & most reliable way for businesses to get their containers moved. As the largest digital container haulage network in Singapore, Haulio helps to reduce inefficiencies through the pooling of jobs.
