Whether children in poverty or local charitable organizations - help is in demand everywhere. That is why we support international and regional projects that we would like to recommend to you.
A gift with a heart: route planning software as a donation for humedica
For many years we have been supporting the “Gift with a Heart” Christmas package campaign by the international aid organization humedica - in the form of a unique donation. Instead of money, we give what we do best: We provide our tour planning software TransIT, including the training of humedica employees, for collecting Christmas parcels.
For ten years now, humedica has been calling for the “Gift with a Heart” Christmas package campaign. The aim of this campaign is to give children in need a little Christmas joy. The campaign is enjoying growing popularity among the “parcel packers” - 90,000 parcels were donated in 2017! In order to collect the Christmas parcels at the over 1,000 collection points in kindergartens, schools, companies and families and then distribute them to children all over the world, many, many volunteer drivers are on the road for several weeks every year.
The joy about the parcels is just as great as the logistical effort. And that's exactly where gts helps! Until 2011, the tours at humedica were largely planned manually. Since the effort was no longer manageable, humedica was looking for a suitable tour planning program. Fortunately, the choice fell on TransIT. Since we can plan better than pack, we support the relief effort by providing the software free of charge. The humedica employees are now planning the collection tours with the route planning software. By using TransIT, the planning effort at humedica could be reduced significantly. Last but not least, the professional route planning also reduced travel costs, as TransIT automatically creates optimized routes. The joy of the actual goal, the giving, now prevails again.
We will continue our commitment as a sponsor and partner in the future through the free use of software, user training and subsequent support.
From Herzogenrath to Burkina Faso - not with route planning, but with Oxfam.
The funding projects focus on entrepreneurship in order to create sustainable prospects. We are happy to support that.
