Flexport makes shipping your cargo transparent, reliable, and affordable

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.

Below is an infographic sharing some of the results from the week’s impact:

While employees are given paid time to participate in volunteer activities each year, Flexport launched Community Forward to take that commitment a step farther. The worldwide event, which spanned 80 activities, reinforced Flexport’s resolution to serving the communities in which it does business.
