The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and affect many aspects of daily life including supply chains. This has already impacted several countries severely for weeks and since yesterday the situation has changed drastically in Denmark. Our government has now ordered a lock-down of the public sector for two weeks and several countries are likely to follow.
CEO Jens Bjørn Andersen: “This is not business as usual for us, our customers and business partners. There will be disruptions of supply chains, but we will do our part to keep the supply chains open. DSV Panalpina is part of the critical infrastructure globally. We are well prepared for the challenging task ahead and aim to maintain operations as close to normal as possible. We remain strongly committed to mitigate the potential impact on our customers' supply chains as much as we can. All the time while ensuring the safety of our employees and other business partners”.
We follow the guidance provided by the WHO and national authorities such as Ministries of Foreign Affairs and National Health Authorities in the countries where DSV is operating and obey imposed restrictions.
DSV Panalpina's Executive Crisis Committee oversee all key activities during this critical period to ensure that the entire organisation is aligned and to keep stakeholders informed.
