Trailer Bridge Participates in Haiti Relief Effort

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Trailer Bridge, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Market: TRBR), as part of the global relief effort for Haiti, contracted with the Military Sealift Command (MSC), the transportation provider for the United States Department of Defense, to provide one of its vessels in support of the U.S. government’s relief efforts in Haiti.  The contract term is a minimum of 90 days and may be extended by MSC.

Trailer Bridge has also partnered with one of its current shipping customers to provide free transportation and trailers for donated medical supplies to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, through the company’s operation in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. It is expected that the company’s donated trailers will remain in Haiti for local use or storage. A Jacksonville warehousing provider has also donated its services to make the move possible. Trailer Bridge will coordinate the freight move, which it expects to leave from Jacksonville, Fla. to Haiti on January 22, 2010.
