Custom App Connects
Trucking Companies With Loads Of Holiday Remembrance Wreaths For Delivery To
Veterans’ Cemeteries Nationwide
Leesburg, Virginia–As part of its ongoing commitment to support worthy
causes, Contensive recently donated the custom “Truckload of Respect”
app to help the Truckload Carriers Association deliver nearly 250 truckloads of
holiday wreaths. The remembrance wreaths were placed on veterans’ graves in
more than 1,000 cemeteries across the country as part of the Wreaths Across
America event on December 13th.
In addition to pairing loads of wreaths with
volunteer trucking companies, the Truckload of Respect app also enables users to
sponsor the cost of delivering a load of wreaths, and to donate or purchase
wreaths to help support the veterans’ wreath charity.
The app’s responsive design allows users to
access TruckloadofRespect.org from a smartphone or tablet device as easily as from
a desktop or laptop computer. The trucking companies volunteering to deliver
loads used the app to search for and select available delivery destinations to
best coordinate with their existing routes.
“Given the fast pace of operations in the
trucking industry, and the time demands of the holiday season, creating a web
app to ease the process of volunteering and donating was a key element in the
success of this important event,” said Contensive Founder Dwayne McGowan. “It
was a great honor to help recognize our country’s fallen veterans.”
About Wreaths Across America & Truckload
Growing out of a program started in 1992 at
Arlington National Cemetery, the annual wreath-laying event was formalized in
2007 as Wreaths Across America to continue and expand the effort to honor our
military veterans. In 2011, the Truckload Carriers Association started its
Truckload of Respect program as part of a commitment to ensure that every load
of donated wreaths would be delivered to veterans’ cemeteries across the
country. In 2014, the program delivered 720,000 wreaths nationwide, with
230,000 of that total placed at Arlington National Cemetery alone, one for each
and every veteran interred at the site.
