We aim to provide answers to some of the most common questions. Please note that information provided here is subject to change.   

For further information please contact your usual contact person at DSV Panalpina.


What is DSV’s overall approach to the COVID-19 situation?

We are doing everything we can to keep supply chains flowing. Overall, we follow the guidance provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and national authorities such as Ministries of Foreign Affairs and National Health Authorities in the countries where DSV is operating. We obey any restrictions imposed.

 How can DSV support my business?

Please contact your regular local DSV account manager or contact person to discuss your specific needs. We will do everything we can to handle special requests where possible.

Does DSV accept visitors/guests at its offices and facilities?

Yes, but only if it is considered absolutely necessary. If possible, meetings shall be held via phone, MS Teams, Skype etc. 

How is DSV handling new regulations and restrictions from authorities?

Our priority is to act as quickly as possible and to work according to the issued guidelines.


Does DSV have a business continuity programme?


Yes, we do. DSV’s business continuity programme is part of our crisis management set-up. Our Executive Crisis Committee directs all key activities during this critical period to ensure that the entire DSV organisation is aligned and aware of the steps to be taken in order to continue to serve our customers. 

What happens in countries which introduce lock-down measures?


DSV will continue operations while taking the necessary measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees and business partners.

In some countries, some or most office staff are working from home and employees in the office are following the guidelines and rules. Terminals and warehouses are operational and we obey guidelines and restrictions in any given country/region. 

At DSV we will do our utmost to maintain operations as close to normal as possible. 

Which DSV operations are affected by the COVID-19 situation?


In general, we are operational. Some but not all operations are affected and not to the same extent. The situation is developing day by day, and we strongly encourage customers to reach out to their usual contact person at DSV. See our operational overview

Are DSV's Trailer Workshops open?

Yes. Our workshops in The Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden are open as normal, with extra precautions to protect against virus transmission.
