The story

Freight transportation isn’t glamorous. It’s essential. Often critical. And then there is a load that stops us in our tracks. It reminds us of the beauty of life, the resiliency of the human spirit, and most importantly, to never take an ordinary day for granted.
 
That load for us was a full truckload that picked up April 29, 2014 in Carrollton, Georgia. It was scheduled to deliver two days later in Stamford, Connecticut and it had to arrive on time - nothing noticeably different from any of the other 28,000 loads we move each week.
 
No different, except awaiting the arrival of this particular load were 100 volunteer police, fire, and community members. This was a load of playground equipment that was being put together in honor of six-year-old Jessie Lewis, one of the 26 victims in the 2012 shooting attack at Sandy Hook Elementary. Our customer shared this story with us. Jessie Lewis had shouted for his classmates to run while the gunman paused to reload his weapon during that December attack. He saved nine of his classmates. 
 
TQL had the honor of arranging the transportation for the final six playground deliveries from the Sandy Hook tragedy and continues to work with Where Angels Play as it builds playgrounds across the country. 
 

How to nominate a non-profit

Inspired by this experience, TQL started a program for our employees, customers and carriers called Moves That Matter. Each month, we’ll donate $1,000 to one non-profit 501(c)(3) that was part of a move that mattered. Since 2014, TQL has dedicated $26,000 to 22 different loads of freight.
