In recognition of Veterans Day, Toyota Material Handling, Columbus, Ind., has highlighted a story involving one of its dealers — Toyota Material Handling Northern California, Livermore, Calif. — and a U.S. military base in Hawaii.

Rich Andres, founder and chairman of Toyota Material Handling Northern California, served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam War in the late 1960s.

Recently, Andres and Toyota Material Handling Northern California delivered a loaded container handler to a U.S. military base in Oahu, Hawaii, to support contingency operations, local training and deployments for the Army.

“This truck will help our operations tremendously and ensure we can make all of our large movements much more efficiently, including fully-loaded shipping containers,” said Melvin Wright of U.S. Army Field Support Brigade LRC 402 Hawaii. “This truck will move all of those important containers, place them on the flatbed truck, and then they’ll be transported down to the port at Pearl Harbor. It’s going to make a big difference for us and save a significant amount of time.”
