CPC Drivers Play A Role in Helping Bridgestone Deliver Relief

At CPC Logistics, due to the nature of our relationship with our customers, we are often able to participate in some amazing demonstrations of goodwill, compassion and humanity.

Recently, an example of those great qualities was demonstrated by Bridgestone Americas Tire Corporation in the wake of the tragic flooding in South Carolina. In an overwhelming demonstration of corporate philanthropy, Bridgestone Americas donated the use of one of its available facilities as a storage and distribution point for relief supplies. In addition, Bridgestone donated four tractor trailers filled with diapers, over the counter medicines, batteries, and food.

We are honored to say that CPC Logistics drivers were at the wheel of those tractor trailers delivering those relief supplies. Read more about this outstanding gesture by Bridgestone Americas here.

Bridgestone Delivers Supplies To Flood Victims

Seeing our customers demonstrate such amazing generosity and humanity is inspiring. Further, it is a demonstration that Bridgestone’s tagline “Your Journey, Our Passion”, is more than just a slogan. At CPC, we are very proud to be aligned with such a great corporate citizen.
