"This year's TIA 3PL Samaritan Award Recipient, England Logistics, through the donation of time, talent and money has led by example.  They don't just talk the talk; they 'walk the walk,'" Voltmann added.

“England Logistics understands the role it plays in creating a more livable, fair, and equitable social environment.  We accept this award on behalf of all the employees at England Logistics.  Their willingness to go above and beyond for their fellow employees and community members is inspiring.  Their dedication to service often times goes well beyond that which is seen in the office and is unerringly commendable,” said Jason Beardall, Executive Vice President at England Logistics.
