UPS Leverages National Donations Management Network for Hurricane Sandy Relief

As a founding partner for the National Donations ManaUPS Logogement Network (NDMN), UPS continues to help in disaster relief. UPS is an active member of the NDMN providing donated and discounte d transportation services for in-kind donations made through the NDMN to the States impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Once a donation offer is accepted, the States and relief organizations can coordinate directly with UPS through the NDMN to arrange transportation of the donated goods.
UPS is a socially-responsible corporate partner that values philanthropic investment in leading-edge technologies to directly benefit the humanitarian relief community. Our relationship with UPS and the UPS Foundation began in 2007 when we came together with FEMA (The United States' Federal Emergency Management Agency) and Accenture to build and launch the National Donations Management System, the first of its kind in the U.S., that interconnects government, relief organizations and businesses during times of disaster. They are also the founding member of the International Transportation Program which helps secure donated and discounted transportation for relief organizations around the world.
