Port Tampa & CURA Freight Send Message of Reassurance to the Tampa Community
As Americans are confronted with news reels of empty grocery shelves and cities on mass lock down. Tampa logistics organizations want residents to know that they’re fully supported amid the global pandemic. In Tampa, the transportation and shipping industry is working around-the-clock. Ensuring residents have food on their tables, medical supplies in their hospitals and, of course, toilet paper in their bathrooms.
Cura Freight partner, Port Tampa Bay, has arisen as one such key business that continues to be open for operation. Over the past several weeks, Americans have shifted their spending away from luxury goods in exchange for the everyday necessities. The needs of the community can only be met through the critical infrastructure that Port Tampa Bay, the largest port in Florida, provides the state.
Port Tampa Bay has a deep impact on the economy with its support of more than 85,000 direct and indirect jobs. The safety and health of their employees remain paramount in these uncertain times. Like Cura Freight, Port Tampa Bay has instituted guidelines from the CDC, such as providing hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and protective gear to employees. As well as implementing social distancing protocols to keep all workers safe.
“We are Open for Business, Supporting our Community”. Such a simple yet powerful message of support and togetherness is on full, Billboard sized display on the Dale Mabry south bound exit on 1-275 in Tampa, FL through the month of April.
“CURA thrives in the face of adversity and pride ourselves on dedication, teamwork, and relentless customer service”, states Cura President, Eddie Santucci. “Understanding that transportation fuels this country, especially in a time of crisis, makes it even more imperative that our services experience no interruption.”
Port Tampa Bay and Cura Freight understand the vital role they play in their local communities and across the country. In these times of uncertainty, media coverage can be overwhelming. This united message to citizens of Tampa and surrounding areas, aims to settle any uneasiness amongst the local communities. Reassuring everyone that local businesses are working together to make sure the shelves stay replenished, and that people keep their jobs.
