As we move through the first week of social distancing due to the recent outbreak of Covid-19 it’s become clear to many about the importance of the supply chain to ensure the availability of necessary supplies. We rely on our transportation professionals to keep our company and the economy moving through all sorts of situations. The Kriska Transportation Group companies are taking steps to help keep our drivers safe and healthy while they perform their essential service.
Since drivers come in contact with many people and equipment throughout their day, we’ve encouraged them to follow public health recommendations for hand hygiene. We’ve implemented a reimbursement program for the purchases of antibacterial soap, hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and gloves to help protect them while they perform their critical job. Further, all KTG terminals have hand sanitizers in strategic areas.
To support social distancing, our operating companies have mandated work from home programs that won’t disrupt our day-to-day operations.
Rather than slow down during the COVID-19 outbreak, our dedicated team is working at full speed to help return products to shelves. We are prepared to help shippers and retailers supply the public with what they need at any time. When you buy food, hand sanitizer or toilet paper, think to thank a trucker.
