Giving back to the community is one of the key elements of the Shleppers mission statement.
For Shleppers, business has never been just about making money. In 2001 Shleppers rose to meet the challenge of the tragic disaster on September 11. The company's support at Chelsea Piers during the rescue efforts, consisting of manpower, trucks and storage space during the initial months following the crisis demonstrated the true partnership of Shleppers and the City of New York.
