Raising Over $80,000 for Autism Awareness, NYC Based Shipping Company MTS Logistics Gives Back Through its 12th Annual Bike Tour

NEW YORK, May 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- MTS Logistics, a New York-based shipping company, announced today that it had raised over $80,000 for autism awareness through its 12th Annual Bike Tour with MTS for Autism, which will take place in New York City on Saturday, June 11th.

Over $80,000 was already donated to Spectrum Works, a nonprofit that provides job training and employment to young adults with autism and builds inclusive workplaces, and MTS Logistics expects to top $90,000 or more by the June event.

Using the money raised from the event, Spectrum Works plans to continue its expansion and rollout of the Spectrum Works BRIDGES network, which has rolled out a recruitment and job training platform serving some of America's largest businesses. The organization has a goal of providing over 25,000 new jobs to young adults with autism.

Having held a charity bike tour event over the past 12 years, MTS Logistics has collectively raised over $250,000 for autism awareness over the past few years.

This year's event sponsors include Orient Star Group, Turkish Philanthropy Funds, Godiva, MTS Turkey, Sinpex Logistics, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), Maersk, CMA CGM, Hapag Lloyd, M.Holland, Tricon, and others.

MTS Logistics President Sedat Saka said:

"We have always ? since our founding over two decades ago ? been focused on giving back as we have found success. Corporate Social Responsibility is really a hallmark of MTS Logistics, and we are delighted to make another huge impact with nearly $100,000 raised for autism awareness. Thank you to all our sponsors who contributed to help us fundraise past our goal and exceed expectations."

Ann Marie Sullivan, Founder and CEO of Spectrum Works said:

"We thank MTS Logistics and all its sponsors for supporting autism employment.
