Hudson's HUMAN Side
As a leader in international supply chain management, Hudson Shipping Lines, Inc. is often put in a position to observe firsthand the crises and deprivations which threaten the global disadvantaged. Established in 1999, the Hudson Shipping Lines Humanitarian Action Network (HUMAN) is designed to leverage Hudson’s assets and experience to respond to and alleviate these global concerns.
HUMAN is a broadly focused charitable fund with access to Hudson’s resources and international expertise with the purpose of identifying and advancing short and long term humanitarian goals
HUMAN possesses a self-contained organizational structure which locates relevant projects, develops a strategy for Hudson involvement, and then executes that strategy. HUMAN has a budget drawn from a portion of Hudson profits, however Hudson makes additional funding available to HUMAN when the situation demands it. With decision making directed by a small team, and support sourced from Hudson’s considerable resources and dynamic employees, HUMAN has both the agility and strength to realize its ambitious objectives.
HUMAN looks for challenges where a strong Hudson influence can make a difference, either through long term projects (such as cancer research) or shorter term solutions (such as mosquito nets). HUMAN gives special consideration to areas where Hudson Shipping expertise enables it to be more effective than other organizations, i.e. areas where Hudson’s local contacts or understanding will enable it to provide a unique perspective on the problem. HUMAN focuses primarily, but not exclusively, on projects in the following areas:
HUMAN creates a framework where Hudson resources are combined with the energy and knowledge of Hudson employees to make a difference in lives around the world. Through close involvement with projects ranging from disaster relief to charitable development, HUMAN insures that Hudson is known not only for its commercial prowess but also its impact among those in need.
