23 Mar Mactrans Logistics: COVID-19 Update
In light of the ever-growing concerns surrounding the rapid transmission of COVID-19, we wanted to take this time to address our clients and bring attention to the ways in which we are continuing to serve them at this time.
At Mactrans, we treat the health and well-being of our employees, clients, carriers, and larger community with the highest priority. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team has remained committed to best practices, taking all necessary precautions recommended by public health authorities. We understand that transportation plays a critical role in the success of the businesses which we serve and, as such, we have worked around the clock to implement internal adjustments that allow us to safely operate at full capacity. Fortunately, our years of industry expertise have laid the foundation for a truly progressive and agile framework; one which allows us to continue to provide logistical support to businesses, while proactively mitigating risk.
To combat the transmission of COVID-19 within our infrastructure, we have aptly canceled all non-essential business travel, while implementing strict quarantine protocols for any employees who traveled internationally as of March 1, 2020. In addition, we have restricted visitors at all offices and implemented enhanced sanitation measures across all touch-points of the supply chain. Many of our carriers have also suspended customer signature requirements upon delivery to ensure the safety of the drivers. Transparency is an integral pillar of our operation and, with this in mind, our senior leadership team is actively monitoring the crisis as it involves and communicating real-time updates to staff, to ensure we remain a cohesive, informed, and safeguarded unit.
Trucking has always been an essential service and, while these are unprecedented times, that sentiment remains to be true. We recognize the responsibility we have as an industry leader who provides critical, logistical support to businesses that help our economy to thrive; and we will continue to serve this purpose for our community. During these uncertain times, Mactrans is still hard at work to keep your shipments moving, and we are here to support you in any way we can both now, and in the future.
