Distribution Technologies Inc (DistTech), Newbury OH, has joined the AMBER Alert Highway Network, an initiative to help recover abducted children, according to DistTech information.
The AMBER Alert Highway Network, a collaboration with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and QUALCOMM Inc and supported by the American Trucking Associations, is the first secondary-distribution initiative to direct AMBER Alerts to professional truck drivers who are near the Alert area.
“DistTech is committed to the communities we serve and honored to play a part in the recovery of abducted children,” said John Rakoczy, chief operations officer for DistTech. “We are proud to work with NCMEC and QUALCOMM, and we look forward to hearing about every child that is helped through the AMBER Alert Highway Network.”
DistTech joins the growing number of transportation and logistics companies committed to the safety of America’s children. The new initiative has the potential to add thousands of trucks and drivers to the AMBER Alert Highway Network. Combined, the member companies dispatch more than 20,000 drivers across the country every day. More than 450 DistTech drivers across the United States will participate in the initiative.
