CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Total Quality Logistics, the nation’s second largest freight brokerage firm, announced today the expansion of its “Moves that Matter” program, which covers the cost to move qualified products donated by a customer to benefit nonprofit and other organizations around the country.

Through the company’s “Moves That Matter” charitable program, it ensures the delivery of donated critical medical equipment and consumer goods to community efforts assisting with the COVID-19 pandemic, at no cost.
“These are the kinds of loads that remind us what we move can honor, change or even save a life, said Kerry Byrne, president of Total Quality Logistics. “Our job at TQL 24/7/365 is to help keep the economy stimulated by facilitating shipments so products can get to store shelves, in consumers’ homes and in the right hands to combat the threat of the novel coronavirus.”
