The situation is moving fast, but we are keeping supply chains moving. In some of the countries and regions first hit by the coronavirus, the situation is beginning to improve. Restrictions are being lifted and lockdowns eased but the overall situation remains far from normal.
Where problems occur, our teams are working together with carriers and suppliers to find alternatives. This is happening intensely with air freight where the reduction in passenger flights has reduced freight capacity considerably. We offer unique solutions via our air charter network with services between the US and China and North and Latin America and Europe.
"We'll keep our customers' supply chains moving, so society can still function. We acknowledge our role as part of critical infrastructure." - Jens Bjørn Andersen, CEO, DSV Panalpina A/S
The past months since the outbreak have shown that we can make no predictions, but what we can say is that we have already gathered much experience, which we are putting to good use in those countries which are now experiencing disruption and lockdowns.
As one of the largest transport service providers, we are in a position to acquire additional capacities and divert freight in order to work around difficulties. And we offer alternatives to our usual air, sea, rail and road transport solutions that may help you mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on your supply chain.
You can help us keep supply chains flowing by advising us of any restrictions or obstacles which may impact collections or deliveries at your business.
If you have any questions, please contact your usual DSV account manager or local office.
