We have a lot of participants in this AASHTO Interstate Convoy and I’ll be featuring them as I have time during the trip. One of them that we learned about this morning is Albert Renteria, founder and president of Operation Interdependence.
Albert says that a lot of the stuff sent to our deployed military doesn’t get where it’s supposed to be and a lot of money is wasted in the attempt. His organization has been formed to create a system that makes it easier to send items and easier for the soldiers on the receiving end to manage the materials. Additionally, his system saves money by being more efficient in how it packages and schedules regular monthly shipments.
I’ll let him explain what Operation Interdependence does in his own words: Albert Renteria Interview (5 min MP3)
