Giving Back

Giving Back

Owning a trucking company is very challenging and rewarding. As an asset-based, private carrier, Rig Logistics has had the good fortune to be successful in our field. We believe that our success isn’t just about enriching our lives and those of our clients, but about bettering the lives of others as well. Part of our company mandate is that we consider it our responsibility to give and serve others. We think it is important to support local causes, as well as looking beyond our immediate surroundings to help those in need.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) were involved in relief work in Nepal in the wake of a devastating earthquake in April 2015. Our team at Rig Logistics wanted to support this relief effort.

Children are our future and we feel strongly about the need to care for them and invest in their lives. We all know how upsetting it is when one of our children is sick with a fever or routine illness. How devastating it is for families when a child is struck with something serious or life-threatening. We are grateful to the Calgary Health Region for the wonderful job they do for all of us. Alberta Children’s Hospital is the largest public hospital for sick children in the prairie provinces. When fundraising was going on for a new ward at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, Rig Logistics was happy to help out.

At Rig Logistics, we are really bothered by the fact that there are people going hungry in a land of plenty. Regardless of the circumstances that cause someone to be in need of help, we think it’s important for help to be available. We are grateful for what we have and want to be sure that those who are less fortunate have food. Rig Logistics is a regular contributor to the Calgary Food Bank.

Every spring Rig Logistics gets together and helps out at a local community parade by serving food. It gets staff out into a completely different setting. The community is able to put faces to the company whose trucks they see out on the highway every day. We are able to build relationships in the community and give back in a tangible way.

As a company, we think that helping others enriches our lives and gives us purpose. It makes us aware that we are all part of a larger human family. Whether we are drivers, part of the office staff, maintenance shop, or management, giving brings us together as a team. There is a sense of accomplishment that enhances morale and brings a greater sense of purpose to our work together.

Rig Logistics is an asset-based, private carrier based out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Please contact us if we can help you with supply-chain management solutions.
