Convoy of Hope Transportation Team on the Front Lines of Helping Those in Need

SPRINGFIELD, MO., April 22, 2020 - As a faith-based, nonprofit organization, Convoy of Hope helps empower others to live with greater independence and freedom from poverty, disease and hunger. Since its founding in 1994, the organization has served 132 million people worldwide.

In the United States, the Convoy of Hope transportation team is on the front lines of delivering food, water, hygiene kits, baby items and relief supplies and more to communities in need during times of disaster, hunger and crisis.

“Our experienced transportation team is focused on quickly and efficiently moving millions of pounds of urgently needed supplies annually,” says Mike Coble, transportation safety and compliance manager for Convoy of Hope at its headquarters in Springfield, Mo. “Our truck drivers are critical to making this happen. Accomplishing this major undertaking requires dedication, skill and a heart to serve people in need. That is the reason why we drive.”
