Celebrating Truck Driver Appreciation Week
The team at Bay Logistics is excited to announce the success of our 3rd Annual Truck Driver Appreciation Week held at the Flint Bay Rack Yard. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of our truck drivers and wanted to show our appreciation by offering quick breakfast goodies. Our team also hosted two days of a cookout where everyone enjoyed some hotdogs, chips, cold salads, and cold drinks. Everyone had a great time!
Boy Scouts Of America
At Bay Logistics, we're more than just a logistics company. We believe in giving back to our community and supporting organizations that make a positive impact. That's why we're proud to have partnered with the Boy Scouts of America as they work to provide valuable life skills to young people. Donating space and material handling services to the Boy Scouts at our Flint food grade distribution center was the least we could do to show our support.

After a wonderful evening, the night ended with a night cap back at the marina.
