LONDON: May 31, 2019. Eddie Stobart Logistics is helping to raise money for Transaid by donating the naming rights of one of its tractor units via a charity auction at Multimodal 2019 next month.

Founded by Save the Children, The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and its Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, Transaid is a development organisation that works with partners and governments in 23 countries to help people build the skills they need to transform their lives.

“Transaid do outstanding work which makes a real difference to people’s lives, and the Eddie Stobart team are proud to be helping them in their mission,” said the company’s Communications manager Julie Daintith.

Transaid works to provide safe and available transport in two core areas, road safety through improving the quality of driver training in Africa (pictured), and access for rural communities to health services by strengthening transport systems.

“Eddie Stobart trucks are famous for having female-only first names and with a four-year waiting list for the honour of naming them, it’s an incredible money-can’t-buy opportunity for us to be chosen,” commented Transaid fundraising head Florence Bearman.

“It’s the exhibitors that make Multimodal dynamic and exciting, creating an event that is ideal for building connections and growing businesses,” added Rob Jervis, Logistics Portfolio director for event organiser Clarion.

Now in its 12th year, Multimodal is the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe’s premier freight, transport, logistics, and supply chain management event.
