Meet the EastCoast Team

ECT Board Meeting Room

Good People Doing Good Work

EastCoast Transport continues a long tradition of supporting food banks nationwide. For any and all surplus or mistaken orders, we coordinate the speedy delivery of produce, dry goods, and any food and beverage products and supplies to local food banks throughout the United States. It’s just one of the ways we help contribute, and help our clients contribute to local communities and give to those in need.

We also have many staff members who valiantly serve their communities as firefighters and emergency responders, and who demonstrate their integrity and dedication at work and at home.That’s why we like to say that, “ECT people aren’t just good workers, they’re great people!”
