MISSISSAUGA, ON (November 25th, 2013) – Shaw Tracking, a Shaw Communications company (TSX: SJR.B and NYSE:SJR), and leader in communications for the Canadian transportation industry, is proud to showcase a new video in collaboration with the non-profit organization Trucks For Change Network (“T4C”). The video, entitled “Filling Trucks, Fulfilling Needs”, will help to garner more awareness of T4C’s programs, which support charities and communities across Canada with transportation services.

By matching available trucking capacity with charity freight requests, T4C’s member trucking companies are able to offer donated or reduced-rate services to charities engaged in distributing donated food and materials. Since launching in 2011 with the help of the Ontario Trucking Association, Trucks For Change Network members have moved over four million pounds of donations to communities across Canada, in the process saving tens of thousands of dollars for charity organizations including Food Banks Canada, Habitat For Humanity Canada, and Canadian Red Cross.

Shaw worked in conjunction with Newcom Business Media to create the video, which highlights the significant role that T4C’s growing network of trucking and logistics members are playing in its communities. Shaw TV will broadcast “Filling Trucks, Fulfilling Needs” multiple times on all systems on Wednesday November 27th. This segment will be airing on 43+ of Shaw’s local go! shows throughout the month of November. The video is also hosted for viewing on YouTube, and all participating carriers and sponsors are encouraged to embed it to their website to promote the trucking industry’s valuable contributions.
