IRON APPLE MONTHLY NEWSLETTER: NOVEMBER EDITION
November has been another amazing month to be part of the transportation and logistics industry. We’ve seen many changes throughout the industry over the past few months from ELDs to Food Safety, with November not being an exception to that.
Another important day we shared this month, November 11 Remembrance Day & Veterans Day. We are honored to be carrying such a strong legacy of brave soldiers who are the real life heroes. Let us be proud of such an amazing history. It takes courage to keep the faith of the people alive and fight with courage for the people of the country. We are fortunate to live in a country where democracy, respect for human rights and the rule of law are fundamental principles. We are able to enjoy this incredible privilege because of the valour of those who answered the call to serve our country.

FEATURED PARTNER SPOTLIGHT:
The Transport Canada: Air Cargo Security Program is part of a global initiative led by the United Nations. Its goal is to ensure the safety of aircraft by having all cargo screened for improvised explosive devices, prior to upload to flight. Many shippers have sensitive cargo, can’t afford potential delays, and wish to avoid the fees incurred by having their cargo screened by a third party. They have joined the program and been approved to screen their cargo before sending it to the airport, where it’s uploaded to flight. Because of this, they require reliable and secure trucking and warehousing. You can provide them that solution. Custom tailored and federally audited solutions from CIM will make your continued participation seamless and efficient, without costly disruption to your business. We are proud of the successes of our clients, and that they have achieved a 100% approval rate. Let us be your partner in air cargo security.
