OnTrac Makes Sweet Deliveries Today for National Donut Day

Posted on Jun 3, 2016 3:11:18 PM

Fractured_Prune_Donuts_1.jpg

As we tie up the week we’re not only celebrating it being Friday, but we are also celebrating National Donut Day by delivering donuts to randomly selected customers. OnTrac coordinated delicious deliveries to be sent in each of our service areas: California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and Idaho. Some of the customers who received a surprise delivery included The Honest Company, Isagenix, Amway, Byram Healthcare, Tire Rack, Benco Dental, Bootworld and many others.

National Donut Day started in 1938 and was created by The Salvation Army to fund the organization’s social causes. This day honors the Salvation Army “Lassies” of WWI. They were the organization’s volunteers who were sent to Europe during this time to hand out these delicious fried morsels to boost troops morale and to provide a link to home and family.

OnTrac created a social media campaign to go along with National Donut Day; capturing all donut deliveries sent to customers and sharing the photos to our social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. We created the hashtag #OnTracDelivery to go along with the popular hashtag #NationalDonutDay so our social media followers can stay updated on the sweet deliveries made throughout our service region.

Go Green with OnTrac During the Month of April

Posted on Apr 4, 2016 11:32:33 AM

ontrac-tree-in-a-box.pngAlthough National Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd, many companies and organizations celebrate the entire month of April making it Earth Month. At OnTrac, we do our part every day to take care of the environment and we hope you are too. Being a SmartWay Transport Partner is one of the ways we reduce our footprint and act as an example within the logistics industry. Over $24.9 billion dollars in fuel costs have been saved through this program and the 3,000 SmartWay Transport Partners who participate.

Another way that we at OnTrac are celebrating Earth Day every day is through our PDF invoicing. All of our customers are encouraged to Go Green with OnTrac by switching to PDF Invoicing to no longer receive invoices by mail. OnTrac offers PDF Invoicing in a new, easy to read format. It’s extremely easy to switch by calling the Billing department at 877-227-5139. We hope that all of our customers take advantage of this opportunity to reduce waste and elect PDF Invoicing.

Not only is April Earth Month, it is also National Volunteer Month, which are two themes that go great together. As stated in the Huffington Post, there are more than 62 million Americans who donate about 8 billion hours of their time a year to the causes and organizations that mean the most to them. Based on scientific research, volunteering is good for maintaining physical and mental health, with benefits such as lower blood pressure, less stress and living longer lives. Not only should we celebrate those who volunteer, we should also volunteer ourselves. Perhaps participating in an organized cleanup event at your nearby park interests you.
