Full Tilt Logistics is the only trucking company named as an EDAWN Corporate Citizen Award winner.
The EDAWN Existing Industry Awards recognize Primary Companies in the Northern Nevada region for their outstanding contribution to our community in a variety of ways. The Existing Industry Awards are a great opportunity to recognize existing Primary Companies for their contributions and Full Tilt was recently named as a recipient of the Corporate Citizen Award.
What’s EDAWN and why does this matter for trucking companies in Reno, like Full Tilt?
The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada or EDAWN offers assistance to prospective, new and existing companies in Northern Nevada. Over the last three years, they’ve helped over 300 companies to relocate or expand in the Greater Reno-Sparks region. Specifically, they assist in: site selection, in-depth research, statistics, and regional business data, industrial and office real estate searches, specialized reports, connectivity, and representation.
Full Tilt Logistics is a family owned and certified Women-Owned Business. Although small, we are unlike other trucking companies in Reno. Since 2014 our logistics company has had a significant impact, not only on redefining the freight and dedicated transportation business in the Reno area but in the contributions in money and employee volunteer hours to the local community. Recognition for these efforts by a large entity like EDAWN confirms that we are on the right path not only as a business but as a community partner.
Full Tilt’s local community partnerships are numerous.
Full Tilt’s culture encourages team members to focus on family and giving back to the community. This is something other trucking companies don’t always focus on, but we believe that it is the secret to our success. Of our various community partnerships, Urban Roots is one of our most active. Urban Roots is a local non-profit that dedicates itself to growing healthy minds, bodies, and communities through education and service.
We sponsor an Urban Roots school garden and buy tee shirts for their summer camp. From planting and harvesting to preparing what we grow, Urban Roots follows food from seed-to-table, empowering students of all ages to answer the question, “Where does our food come from?” We also have team members heavily involved in the Truckee Meadows Boys and Girls Club by being on the Young Leaders Committee, serving as mentors for at-risk youth and donating money to the organization monthly.
In addition, a Full Tilt team member is a founding member of the Mater Academy of Northern Nevada, a Charter School for at-risk youth. We contribute to the MS Society, American Heart Association and Moms on the Run. We volunteer at Thanksgiving to feed families at the Boys and Girls Club and provided a significant donation to the Jammies Drive which provides pajamas for babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We have also donated thousands of dollars of office equipment to a local church. This past year we organized a “diaper drive” for the Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston. We have already seen how hurricanes and other factors are affecting dedicated transportation, so it’s significant that we were able to fill a 53-foot trailer and provide the transportation free of charge to those Texas children in need.
