TNT airlifts 1 million daily rations for Haiti

TNT on 23 January flew its first relief flight for the victims of the Haiti earthquake. A Boeing 747-400 ERF cargo plane carried 105 metric tons of high energy biscuits, the equivalent of 500,000 daily rations. A second flight is scheduled for the coming days. TNT has also committed to sending two to four logistics experts of its Emergency Response Team to support the World Food Programme. Moreover, TNT donated EUR 300,000 to Haiti relief, not to mention fundraising initiatives by TNT employees. On 12 January, the south of Haiti was struck by a disastrous 7.0-magnitude earthquake that paralysed its infrastructure and left 3 million people in need of immediate aid.
