From the removal of invasive plants in Shenzhen parks to delivering meals to New York City senior citizens, Flexport employees across the globe recently took time to give back to the communities they live and work in.

Community Forward, Flexport’s first-ever global employee volunteer week took place June 3-7, with more than 1,000 employees from Flexport’s 14 global offices logging 2,500 hours.
