CMA CGM Group is supporting more than 35,000 American families with Thanksgiving food donations across the country. In addition to the actual donations, CEVA Logistics (a subsidiary) is coordinating all of the ground transportation for the turkey distributions. Another subsidiary, APL, is providing Thanksgiving food boxes for U.S. troops and their families in coordination with the USO (United Services Organization).
Turkey Shortage Makes this a Challenge
With the COVID-19 pandemic still wreaking havoc on the world, turkeys are in short supply this year. Interra International’s sales manager was able to find 10,000 turkeys from Butterball, a sister company of Seaboard Overseas & Trading Group (an Interra affiliate). Interra International and team facilitated with the paperwork and logistics to assist with the turkey donations. Butterball sold the turkeys to CMA at cost and the turkeys were donated to American families in need.
For everyone involved in helping American families have a warm and hearty meal this Thanksgiving, we are incredibly grateful. The ability to give back to communities across America is a pleasure and an honor. We wish everyone a healthy, happy, and hearty Thanksgiving holiday!
