In these challenging and uncertain times since the COVID-19 outbreak, we all face new challenges every day. Our main focus is on keeping everyone safe and we have taken prompt action in all our locations to ensure the wellbeing of our colleagues. This is key to ensure we continue to operate and serve our customers. We are following the different requirements by local authorities and we try our best to identify potential risks at an early stage and take the appropriate measures to counteract them, so that we can maintain maximum delivery capacity within the given circumstances.
It is reassuring to know that despite all the current circumstances, global awareness of the importance of a functioning supply chain is stronger than ever, and that the much greater risks are governmental-imposed plant closures.
Unfortunately, abrupt plant closures on the part of customers or suppliers cannot be planned at the moment and will have a huge impact along the supply chain. As this scenario is becoming more and more present, we are in close contact with our suppliers and would ask you to inform us as soon as possible if such measures are imminent.
If you have further questions in this regard, please contact your regional office; they will explain the most current situation and measures in detail.
