CleanHorizSemiHT_72DPI_RGBJanuary 11th is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, and we are pleased to announce that Transport Services has signed the Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking Pledge, joining a U.S. Department of Transportation initiative to fight human trafficking through increased education and public awareness.

The DOT’s initiative is comprised of transportation and travel industry stakeholders working jointly to maximize their collective impact in combating human trafficking. The partnership focuses on five key areas: leadership, education and training, policy development, public awareness and outreach, and information sharing and analysis.

Human trafficking is one of the greatest atrocities of the 21st century. With as many as 24.9 million men, women and children sold into prostitution, domestic servitude or other forced labor in dark corners around the globe, it may seem like a problem beyond our borders. But the truth is, it’s happening right here in our communities across America.

Those committing this awful crime are using America’s roadways, railways, waterways and skies to traffic victims. We cannot allow our transportation system to be an enabler in such awful acts.

Transport Services is committing the company’s support to help raise awareness and collaboration across the transportation sector. We are committed not only to preparing our own employees to recognize and report suspected instances, but also to raising awareness among the public.

We invite you to join us in the fight to end human trafficking. Learn the basic indicators of human trafficking and be alert. Your simple act of calling in a tip could save lives and help us move closer to a world without human trafficking.
