Fortna, a leading distribution consulting and engineering firm, has become a bronze sponsor of the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN).
ALAN comprises hundreds of supply-chain businesses who stand poised to respond in the event of disasters, and locate and move goods from suppliers to affected communities rapidly and efficiently. Fortna joins 16 other bronze sponsors, whose contributions will provide ongoing support for ALAN’s disaster relief efforts around the world.
“This has been a particularly tragic year with regards to global natural disasters, many in areas where we have associates or associates’ families,” said John A. White III, president and CEO of Fortna. “We are happy to support ALAN’s great work at bringing a rapid and coordinated effort to reestablishing a reliable supply chain to areas in the grip of disasters.”
