At Ryder, it is our job as a leader in transportation and logistics to plan for challenges and disruption to our customers’ supply chains. It is what you trust us to do. Today, coronavirus (COVID-19) is at the top of that list. As the situation continues to evolve, we are monitoring its development and potential impact to your business and supply chain.
First and foremost, the safety of our customers, employees, consumers, and communities is our number one priority.
According to the CDC, the transportation and logistics industry may be particularly affected by the coronavirus. If disruptions in the supply chain occur, we will work with you to identify alternate transportation modes and routes, utilize additional truck capacity, provide dedicated fleets and drivers, as well as locate additional warehouse space and the labor to support operations as needed.
Our locations are open and operational. And, we have put in place precautionary measures to mitigate the risks associated with coronavirus. We’re working closely with our safety and field managers to take extra precautions, including the implementation of CDC guidelines on cleaning of common areas. We’re also implementing new policies to make it easier for affected employees to stay home and care for themselves or sick family members.
