McKesson Delivers… to help fight human trafficking
Human trafficking is a $32 billion-a-year industry that victimizes millions of innocent people across the world. Victims are often relocated to different places using the U.S. transportation infrastructure. After learning about Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT), a non-profit organization that works closely with law enforcement and the trucking industry with the goal of stopping human trafficking, Houston Transportation Manager Daniel Garces found a way to leverage McKesson’s existing team of 950 Delivery Professionals to help fight one of the most common crimes in the trucking industry. Along with a small team, Daniel trained the delivery professionals on how to recognize suspicious activity and help identify a victim of human trafficking. All McKesson delivery professionals now carry wallet cards with helpful phone numbers and instructions on what to do if they see signs of trafficking on the road. “It’s nice to be a part of something like this and know that we could possibly save someone from this horrible crime,” said Daniel.
Thanks to Daniel, McKesson’s transportation team delivers way beyond just packages. For more information about TAT and tips to spot potential victims of human trafficking, visit truckersagainsttrafficking.org.
