In September we held our annual customer appreciation day.
It was a great success. Many customers came out to enjoy a day of food, music, and positive exchanges. It was lovely to meet and honor both our old and new customers.
Along with our customer appreciation activities, we shared information about our corporate social responsibility and how we have been giving back.
We unveiled the Homer N.E Rutty, Snr. Foundation. Trans Caribe Express Shippers, Inc. is a family-owned and operated business, which was established by our father, Homer Noel Eugene Rutty, Snr. Sadly, our father recently transitioned on March 26, 2021. We are proud of our father’s legacy as a generous and kind gentleman who received many awards and honors for his work throughout his lifetime.
The HNE Foundation encompasses health, social, educational programs and resources. The HNE Foundation will also be assisting students in preparing for careers at sea and attending the Mid Atlantic Maritime Foundation.
At the event, The Walkers Youth Foundation, Inc. was also introduced. Through this foundation, our family and Trans Caribe have been providing philanthropic and charitable efforts to the youth and alumni of the Walkerswood, St. Ann community in Jamaica for over 25 years.
As part of the event agenda, we also provided a donation to a child with the aim of giving them the best possible start to a successful school year. We believe that with this donation, we have provided positive memories during a difficult time for a child.
As a small business, our vision is to build a creative, empowered, customer-focused family of employees who sees beyond the need to make sales and rather emphasize the customer’s experience that permeates every level of our culture and our community. We love what we do, and we show it!
We believe this event was truly a success! We met many customers who were able to share their priorities and concerns with us and also learn firsthand how Trans Caribe works and about our corporate social responsibility to the community.
We would like to express our gratitude again to our customers for supporting all that we do at Trans Caribe.
