At Truck World 2014 in Toronto on April 10, 11, and 12 in Toronto, Trucks For Change Network joined hands with many of its member carriers and industry partners to fight hunger by supporting Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank.

The Trucks For Change Network Story 


Watch the Trucks For Change story on YouTube.

Who We Are

Trucks For Change Network™ is a not-for-profit organization made up of members from across the transport logistics industry.  Our members are socially conscious trucking companies and private truck fleet operators who value and support the many great charities whose work makes our communities a better place to live. 

What We Do

In simple terms, we connect our member trucking firms (which we call "carriers"), with registered charitable organizations requiring transport services to do their work.  By matching charity transport needs with the resource capacity of our member carriers, we make it convenient and cost effective for our members to offer their professional services to charities at preferred rates, or in many cases on a donated basis.  Our charity clients benefit by enjoying cost savings and convenient planning, allowing them to spend their time and resources on their important work in our communities.  Our member carriers benefit by earning revenue or donation credit in exchange for sharing their available resources.  Everybody wins.

Why We Do It

Statistics Canada reports that charitable donations are falling across the country, just as the needs of our leading community service charities are growing.  We believe that finding new ways to identify and match surplus resources from our business sector with the needs of our charities can help to close this gap.  Canada’s trucking community  has a proud track record of supporting charities whose mission requires the transportation of donated materials.  Still, many such potential donations end up in our landfill sites for lack of an affordable transportation solution to get them to where our charities can use them. By making it simple and cost-effective for our members to find and address these needs, we can make our charity clients more effective, while at the same time creating a more sustainable environment.
