Looking to Help? Opportunities to Respond to Texas Hurricane Disaster

The effects of Hurricane Harvey have been devastating to southeast Texas as it made landfall along the gulf coast and produced significant rainfall and record flooding. TMSA and our members support the American Logistics Aid Network - an active member and partner of our association that has the mission of supporting disaster recovery by engaging industry to address the unmet needs of relief organizations, communities, and people. 

Latest Updates from ALAN
TMSA's CEO, Brian Everett, was asked to join a meeting this morning (Thursday) with Robert Glenn of FEMA Private Sector; ALAN representatives; the Texas Trucking Association; Truckstop.com: and other partners that support ALAN's mission. The American Logistics Aid Network briefing included:

  • Houston remains under local protocol and is considered a rescue mission. FEMA Private Sector will announce For-Hire opportunities soon. TMSA will forward details to our members.
  • Freight rates in this region are up 25%
  • TMSA members with businesses that have been affected in the region can get the support they need by contacting ALAN
