Funds raised at the event will benefit MtS’s seafarer support activities.
Six MOL employees who love trail running were divided into two teams and competed in the event, in appreciation of the seafarers who continue to sustain the main artery of international logistics even while the COVID-19 pandemic that lasted more than three years forced them to stay at sea for extended periods of time, and in hopes of improving the working environment for seafarers around the world. The company also called on MOL Group employees to make donations, and provided $30,000 to co-sponsor for the event.
