NEW YORK, NY, May 7, 2018 – MTS Logistics, an award-winning New York-based freight forwarder with a global client base, today announced their 8th Annual Bike Tour with MTS for Autism, to be held on Saturday, June 9th, 2018. Building on the success of last year’s bike event, MTS Logistics also announced that they had already raised over $21,500 from a variety of sponsors, far exceeding last year’s donations.
Event sponsors include MSC, Godiva, Orient Star Transport, MTS Istanbul, MTS Izmir, Pacific Green Trucking, EFL India, Sino Connections Logistics, Maersk, Livingston International and INTTRA.
The largest biking event in the logistics and transportation industry, the annual event helps spread awareness of autism and assists in the fight against it. Over the last 7 years, MTS Logistics has held the event as a healthy and fun way to raise awareness of a great cause.
All proceeds raised will be donated to Spectrum Works, a unique nonprofit that provides job training and employment to young adults with autism by building inclusive workforces at its partner companies.
Each participant will be provided a bike if needed, a biking jersey, and a bottle of water. They will receive a box of chocolates courtesy of MTS Logistics customer and gold sponsor Godiva. There will be a complimentary healthy brunch at Volna Café in Brooklyn, courtesy of MTS Logistics. The company will hold a raffle to give away a grand prize - a new bike, and an additional prize of two Fit-Bits.
Sedat Saka, President of MTS Logistics said, “We contributed to a great cause over the last 7 years and look forward to continuing to make a difference in 2018. I would like to thank all of our sponsors who have helped us raise over $21,500. MTS Logistics is dedicated to giving back, and we hope to see everyone at this year’s event.”
