Altoona, PA – Ward launches employee volunteer program Hearts & Hands

Ward Transport & Logistics employees who have a giving heart, a serving heart and want to make a change came together to form a volunteer program. It is designed to serve others by providing caring and hands-on assistance to our charities and organizations that work hard every day in providing need to the families in our community and surrounding area.

We also understand life can be hard and it can often be difficult to ask for help. So, be it the elderly, veterans, disabled, or anyone who finds themselves in need of an able body for tasks they are not able to perform, we want you to know we are here to lend a hand.

Hearts & Hands provides volunteers for tasks such as: Set-up/ tear down of charity events / Serving food in local soup kitchens / Delivering food boxes to the elderly / Animal rescue shelter support / Mentoring children

Ward service to the Midwest and Pacific Northwest expands

Posted by Bill Bettwy - Wednesday, October 9th, 2019 at 8:43 AM

As of October 1, 2019 Ward Transport and Logistics began partnering with Midwest Motor Express in providing service to the Midwest region of the country. Midwest Motor Express has a history dating back to 1918 when the company was founded. Over 100 years later, the Midwest Motor has expanded from a single team of horses to a 33 service center organization that is now respected throughout the industry. Midwest Motor Express is still led today by family members of its founders. Once again we have found a partner carrier with a long history of strong family leadership, a focus on service and financial stability that matches our own.










Servicing the vastness of the Midwest and Pacific Northwest is no easy task, but Midwest Motor is known for their commitment to service from their service centers located in 16 states. From Illinois and Wisconsin to Washington and Oregon, this service expands our coverage to incorporate another 5,800+ cities and towns for our Ward Nation service offering. There are two major new lanes for our Ward customers – the major cities of Denver and Salt Lake City. Customers can expect end to end visibility for their shipments and single point of contact with their Ward Solutions Managers to handle any opportunity that comes our way. The service will begin as one-way solution heading Westbound and evolve into a two-way solution in Spring 2020.
