August 2013 - Disabled Veterans....Let's Not Forget

Hyperlogistics Group had the priviledge of meeting with the Disabled American Veterans Association (DAV) on July 31st and is honored to announce that an award was received from the DAV for participation in the transport of 22 skids of bottled water to the Wounded Warrior Program at Fort Knox, KY in December 2012.

It was the quest of John Schmenk, a dedicated member of the DAV organization, to find transportation for a load of bottled water to the Wounded Warrior Program in Fort Knox, Kentucky.  Hyperlogistics Group, a top third party logistics company in Columbus, Ohio picked up on the chance to deliver.  Many thanks to John Alden, of AldenLaw in Columbus, Ohio, which served as the lynchpin in joining the two sides. 

The desert yielded many days with no water.........and a simple bottle of water symbolizes security to these veterans.  Too often we forget those who are forever living with fears or without limbs or sight as payment of ‘the blank check.’  It was an honor to show appreciation to these esteemed Veterans.

Hyperlogistics' President, Seatta Layland; Driver, Carl Fuller; Transportation Manager, Kelly Morris; and Vice President, Geoff Manack accept the award from the DAV.

Luxembourg, 13 June 2013. Cargolux Airlines International S.A. today announced that the airline has added a new direct service from Hong Kong to Columbus, Ohio, effective from 16 June. At the same time, Columbus becomes the latest airport in the network to be served with Cargolux’s new 747-8 freighters. Cargolux will operate two weekly flights on the route.

The airport infrastructure and service is very
accommodating for air freight operators and well adapted to the needs of the 747-8F, Forson added.
The Columbus Regional Airport Authority and its three airports, Port Columbus International Airport, Rickenbacker International Airport and Bolton Field Airport, as well as select businesses located at Rickenbacker Inland Port, accounted for US$6.6 billion in total annual economic output in 2012.

The direct Cargolux flight from Hong Kong offers shippers of fashion goods and other commodities fast and convenient connections from Asia to this market.
