A Year in Review with BTX Global Logistics: Highlights of 2018

2018 was an exceptional year for BTX Global Logistics, a global shipping and logistics organization headquartered in Shelton, Conn. The year was marked by exponential growth across all levels of the business including staffing, the opening of new regional branches and the expansion of service offerings.

BTX Global Logistics continues to make an impact in the community by sponsoring and participating in key events, such as the ‘Step Up for the Braves’ challenge. The 2018 event raised money for Homes for the Brave (HFTB) to help men, women and children leave homelessness behind. The not-for-profit organization has a special focus on helping veterans and their families. Other community outreaches 'BTX Cares' was a part of in 2018 include coat drives, toy drives and natural disaster relief initiatives. Click here to view the BTX Cares Photo Gallery.
