Move For Hunger and Moving Ahead Services Announce Collaborative Effort to Fight Hunger Nationwide

RED BANK, N.J. -- Moving Ahead Services, an independent mover that has 6 locations nationwide, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced today a partnership that will help provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the United States.

As a partner, Moving Ahead Services will support Move For Hunger's food rescue and hunger relief programs. To date, Move For Hunger's network of relocation professionals and multi-family properties has collected and delivered more than 21 million pounds of food - providing over 17 million meals - to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.

"As a result of the pandemic, more than 54 million Americans are unsure of where or when they will find their next meal, yet an estimated 40% of all food grown, processed, and transported in the United States is wasted," explains Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "Moving Ahead Services understands the need is more critical than ever and is committed to helping us provide meals to those struggling to put food on the table."

Move For Hunger and Moving Ahead Services have been partners since 2014. Together, their offices have collected 84,819 pounds, enough to feed 70,682 people. In 2019, Moving Ahead Services organized and picked up leftover food from the Cleveland marathon, where they transported 5,355 pounds of food, providing 4,462 meals to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

"Partnering with Move For Hunger hits on two fundamental core values at Moving Ahead Services: Giving back to our community, and providing a service that is unrivaled. We are thrilled to continue our partnership and excited to see what we can accomplish together in 2021," says President of Moving Ahead Services, Jeff Collins.

Through the support of partners like Moving Ahead Services, Move For Hunger can continue to feed and empower more to fight for the families, children, seniors, and vulnerable communities who are most in need of food assistance.

DN Van Lines, a Northborough, MA based moving services company charts their way through challenging decisions during the COVID-19 pandemic

NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- As a medium sized services business, DN Van Lines learned the hard way about "Staying the course," an idiomatic expression that means to persevere to the end, no matter what difficulties or obstacles stand in the way. Wikipedia attributes the popularization and modern usage of the phrase to former United States Presidents including Ronald Reagan who all used the phrase as a rallying slogan at various points during their terms in office.

Business leaders are charged with the responsibility to constantly monitor the changing business environment and chart the course with corrections necessary to keep their organizations stable and growing. This requires evaluating the business landscape to understand the changes currently taking place and assessing how these changes affect business conditions in the present and going forward.

Never has there been a more challenging period than now as businesses throughout the country and the world are confronted with the difficult and critical shifts brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Never has the expression "stay the course" taken on a more significant meaning to owners and leaders of mid-sized businesses who have decided to stay put and brave the odds.

DN Van Lines is an example of a mid-sized business that did just that: stay the course. 2020 saw DN Van Lines, a company that provides moving and storage services to consumer, corporate and government clients, faced with enormous challenges, one after the other. Military moves which are an important part of its business mix simply stopped when the Department of Defense issued stop movement orders that effectively halted the normal Permanent Change of Station movement of service members domestically and abroad. Corporate clients also halted transfer of their staff. Even in the private consumer move market the overwhelming effect was great confusion and uncertainty as customers struggled to interpret conflicting guidance from governmental agencies.

Oded Carmi, President of DN Van Lines, saw companies around him react with layoffs, furloughs, salary reductions, and other cost-cutting measures as well as a general cancellation of planned business investments. As a business owner who understands that his staff's livelihood rests on their employment at DN Van Lines, Mr. Carmi did not see lay-offs or salary reductions as options. What he did instead was look for other possibilities, but not before deciding firmly that staying the course would be the main strategy.

It's a lesson that Mr. Carmi learned the hard way in his experience of the 2008 recession. Mr. Carmi, along with many investors, panicked and exited the market at its lowest point as more experienced investors held out. While the ensuing market gyrations tested the resolve of even the savviest investor, the decision of those who stayed the course paid off as the market not only returned but went on to set new record highs.

"When I recollect about the recession, I get reminded of one of George Bush's memorable gaffes, 'There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again.' Seriously though, it's impossible to botch the meaning of that classic aphorism. No way was I going to be fooled again a second time. In fact, I have never been more determined to keep going than during this pandemic," Mr. Carmi quipped.

In the most challenging business environment, it has ever found itself in, DN Van Lines chose to stand with its people and protect their employment status. It chose to believe in its staff's capability to adapt to the COVID-19-dictated new normal. It chose to hang on to the faith that even during a pandemic, there was opportunity to be found. And that when the end of the pandemic finally comes, DN Van Lines, armed with dedicated professional staff, will be ready for the expected surge in consumer demand.

"I put my faith in the talented people of my organization to find ways to survive and maybe even thrive. Instead of closing down our offices and going home, we rolled up our sleeves and went to work. We found opportunity to pick up business from other industry competitors that had shuttered their doors or reduced their operating capacity. We formed new relationships with business partners that had an increased demand for our services due to the pandemic such as educational institutions and hospitals," Mr. Carmi said.

How is DN Van Lines faring now, you might ask.

The answer is: not bad at all. Almost a year into the pandemic, recent developments with COVID-19 vaccines indicate that a market resurgence may take place soon. Meanwhile, consumer demand for local and long-distance moving services in the last 10 months has exceeded expectations. In late June of 2020, the Department of Defense lifted its stop movement order. Most importantly the organization has adapted and shifted its focus to serving new market sectors more than making up for shortfalls in other business lines for DN Van Lines.

"It's been an arduous challenge but with our loyal staff who adapted, displayed great patience and kept their sense of humor, we managed not only to stay afloat but do better in other aspects of the business," Mr. Carmi proudly shares. "Moving is hard enough given the regular challenges that we face but add the social distancing, hygienic protocols and even something seemingly simple like using face coverings, it just became so much harder. What this experience has given me is a new level of respect and admiration for our front-line moving staff."

Sir Richard Branson said, "Take care of your employees and they'll take care of your business."

As First Vice President of the Massachusetts Movers Association, Mr. Carmi recently wrote an appeal to the State's governor asking for consideration to have moving staff deemed as essential workers and prioritize them for COVID-19 vaccinations. "The nature of our work requires us to be in close contact daily with customers in homes, businesses and medical facilities. Our work is essential, and I believe the governor will give our request serious consideration."

Mr. Carmi need not look far for affirmation that he made the right decision. 2021 has started off with continued strong demand for moving. Staying the course, a lesson learned the hard way, proved to be the right decision.

Capstone Logistics Named to FourKites’ Premier Carrier List for Q4 2020

PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. -- Capstone Logistics, a leading provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions, has earned a spot on the Q4 2020 Premier Carrier List from FourKites, the leader in supply chain visibility.

The Premier Carrier List showcases carriers, brokers, and 3PLs that have achieved the highest standards of visibility-related operational excellence, as demonstrated by their ability to provide high-quality, consistent, accurate data on the majority of their loads. By following these best practices, Premier Carriers provide their shipper customers with data that can streamline operations, increase dock turn times, reduce inventory levels, and better manage labor costs.

"We are thrilled to have Capstone Logistics on the Q4 Premier Carrier List. Capstone is an incredible example of operational excellence when it comes to supply chain visibility," said Jason Eversole, Vice President, Carrier Operations & Strategy, at FourKites.

It is an honor to partner with such a committed company, and we are looking forward to seeing continued success for the Capstone team."

Capstone offers end-to-end visibility through a unique integration between transportation and warehousing divisions. The company's interconnected platform allows key data to flow freely, which creates efficiencies and reduces costs for partners. In 2020, Capstone leveraged its visibility services to improve tracking consistency month-over-month, despite a challenging freight environment and tender rejections reaching all-time highs.

"Visibility has become increasingly critical given the supply chain challenges of 2020. The FourKites Premier Carrier List highlights carriers that have truly made visibility a priority during these unprecedented times," said Bill Kropf, Vice President of Client Management at Capstone Logistics. "At Capstone, we've made visibility part of our DNA because we understand the end-to-end value it brings to our partners, and ultimately to their customers. We are excited to do our part in reducing supply chain waste."

"It is an honor to be one of the few non-asset-based providers on the Premier Carrier List," said Jon Ackerman, Executive Vice President of Carrier Sales at Capstone Logistics.

Rypos ULETRU Filters Achieve In-Use Compliance Goals for Thermo King and Carrier Transportation Refrigeration Units

FRANKLIN, Mass. -- RYPOS, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of advanced, exhaust filtration systems that reduce harmful emissions from diesel engines is pleased to announce the successful completion of the On-Road In-Use Compliance required by the California Air Resources Board for their entire Ultra Low Emission Transportation Refrigeration Unit active diesel particulate filter (DPF) product line.

The DPF systems, which are verified to the Level 3+ reduction standard by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and have been operated extensively within the refrigerated trailer fleets in California, have recently been retested after years of field use by an independent lab and found to be fully emission compliant.

The Rypos Active DPF is a filter that traps and burns soot reducing particulate matter emissions by more than 85 percent. Unlike other particulate filter technologies, the Rypos system is self-monitoring and completely autonomous ensuring that the filter is continuously clean and able to accept the full exhaust load of the engine in any operating conditions and at any time.

"This important milestone validates the systems original design premise, that it would be an end-of-life compliance solution for the Tier IV interim and less than 25 horsepower engines powering the majority of the installed base," said Peter Bransfield, RYPOS' CEO.

About Rypos

RYPOS (www.rypos.com) is a privately held Company with operations in Franklin, Mass. They have designed and developed a number of leading-edge diesel exhaust filtration products for small and large engines that utilize their patented electrical regeneration strategy and technology.

Mopec Announces New Morgue Overflow Cold Storage Container Systems

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. -- Mopec, the nationwide leader in pathology, anatomy, mortuary and necropsy equipment and supplies, announced a new all-inclusive cold storage container system available on a monthly rental basis to provide morgues, funeral homes, and healthcare organizations with increased decedent refrigeration capacity.

These refrigerated containers are perfect for any organization looking for additional on-site refrigerated space. This temporary and expandable system sits at ground level and comes with an attachable ramp for easier loading and unloading. Available in a 20-foot or 40-foot system, these containers can handle 16 to 50 bodies at max capacity.

"There were a number of problems with the refrigerated semitrailers organizations ran into when the pandemic first hit that we have been working with our customers to solve," said Kirk Gossett, Vice President of Global Sales for Mopec. "We combined all of their feedback with our decades of engineering and design experience and created a whole new system that better fits the varying needs across the country."

While the system is electrically powered via "shore" power, it can be easily converted for use with a diesel generator. Because the unit sits on the ground, it eliminates the need for a loading dock or large and dangerous ramps. Offered as an all-inclusive system, the refrigerated container comes with everything needed to increase surge capacity, including Guardian Four or Five Tier Body Storage Racks, Body Storage Trays, Body Bags, and a Battery Powered Body Lift.

Guardian Morgue Overflow Cold Storage Container Systems are included under the Mopec Guardian Systems line and are the ultimate solution when dealing with surge capacity morgue overflow.

Janet Turner Powers New Expansion of Corporate and International Markets for DN Van Lines

NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- Industry veteran and a successful entrepreneur in her own right, Janet Turner joins DN Van Lines (headquartered in Northborough, Massachusetts), as Director of Corporate Relocation. Ms. Turner brings with her over 40 years of combined experience in international and domestic moving and transportation services.

Ms. Turner founded WISEnterprises NJ in 1992. A freight forwarding company that provided moving and relocation-related services to corporate clients and industry partners worldwide, WISEnterprises succeeded for decades under Ms. Turner's leadership. In 2014, Ms. Turner merged her business with Accelerated Forwarders, a global moving services provider in Ft. Wayne Indiana where she worked on the development of an innovative domestic small shipment program for the growing market trend toward flexible corporate relocation benefit programs, among other projects.

Oded Carmi, President of DN Van Lines, in welcoming Ms. Turner to the team, stressed his enthusiasm about how the timing could not have been more ideal and the fit, more perfect: "It's a perfect fit at a most opportune time. Since DN Van Lines' formation in 2006, our story has always been one of growth built on the relentless pursuit of service excellence. Janet's portfolio of experience and relationships dovetails perfectly with little overlap into our existing business. In fact, it effectively leverages the strength of our foundation and the DN Van Lines brand into the corporate relocation market. That foundation stands strong to this day on the skills, experience and passion of our people. Janet's passion for personal service is a welcome infusion."

A lot of companies in the moving and relocation industry has been seriously impacted by the pandemic and resultant business environment in 2020. The silver lining is that the impact has also accelerated a number of changes which present unique opportunities.

Ms. Turner, with her vast industry experience, is quite attuned and perceptive to the market: "Small shipments often get overlooked but there is a growing need developing from changes in moving consumer preferences as well as corporate client requirements. Corporations are offering their relocating transferees flexible options including lump sum allowances. Not every move involves 2 or 3 bedrooms of furniture and fixtures so the flexibility of our small shipment program will meet this growing demand."

Another unique opportunity for DN Van Lines is the fact that corporate relocation is not limited to just domestic movement. Under Ms. Turner's direction, DN Van Lines can now also offer international services to their corporate clients.

Mr. Carmi is confident of the perfect fit: "We've always had a global mindset and have never shied away from international opportunities. Janet's experience and relationships come at exactly the right time. With the international travel lockdowns associated with the current pandemic may make this move sound counter intuitive, both Ms. Turner and I recognize a vacuum in services tailored to overseas industry partners. Our overseas colleagues rely on us as service partners here in the US to deliver on the service promises they make to their clients. I believe our assets, physical locations and staffing are uniquely qualified to fill that void."

Capstone Logistics Reduces Driver Dwell Time with Direct Bill Program

PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. -- Capstone Logistics, a leading provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions, has streamlined the unloading payment process by implementing a Direct Bill program that reduces driver dwell time at their partners' distribution centers by an average of 30 minutes. It also enables contactless payments at these facilities for improved driver safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Typically, a truck driver is notified of unloading fees upon check-in at a warehouse and is responsible for paying the amount by cash or Comchek. Issuing and processing payment happens upon completion of the unload, where significant dwell time can occur.

With Direct Bill, Capstone's contracted carriers can bypass payment altogether at select Capstone-supported sites. This provides unique value for shippers that leverage Capstone's integrated freight management and warehouse services.

Benefits for carriers include:
* Reduction in dwell time and detention
* Eliminates risk of not getting reimbursed
* Less hassle dealing with receipts
* Safe, contactless payment during the COVID-19 pandemic

Benefits for shippers include:
* Faster unloading leads to shipper of choice status and carrier retention
* Streamlined payments that reduce wasted time and resources
* Less risk of fraudulent receipts or billing disputes

Capstone partners that have implemented Direct Bill have seen notable results. For example, one multinational food manufacturer reduced their average unload time by 21 percent.

"Capstone touches nearly seven million loads annually. This means that we have the unique ability to partner with our high-volume vendors to drastically reduce dwell times for carriers," said Chris Ricciardi, President of Freight Management at Capstone. "A better experience for drivers through Direct Bill not only improves their quality of life and ability to generate revenue, it helps us drive carrier retention and reduce supply chain waste."
