The long road ahead with COVID
Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, general road freight has been considered an essential service, but it has not been immune to its affects.
Amid business closures, ever-changing restrictions, permit requirements, and boarder restrictions, the industry has continued to operate through varying levels of lockdown across Australia.
Transport has changed in the present and is certain to continue post-pandemic. While the level of restrictions vary from state to state, in general, every business that remains open must create a COVID Safety plan.
Following the most up-to-date recommendations from the Health Authorities per state and region, we have identified a few measures that will be implementing nationwide moving forward. Maintaining social distancing when possible, continue to practice good hygiene, and encouraging contact less payments where possible.
At Truckline, we are conscious of our responsibility to keep employees, suppliers, and customers safe. Ensuring they too can continue to safely operate during holiday season.
Branch Manager, Daniel Colussi, takes us through some of the measures the Wetherill Park team are implementing. “We will keep the extensive communications throughout the store to keep encouraging social distancing, we have sourced an incredible amount of hand sanitizers for our customers and team members, and we will be continuing our rigorous cleaning and disinfecting practices which occur several times per day.”
These times have challenged us all, and we still foresee a long road ahead. However, by all being aware of our roles and impact in keeping Australians safe and our industries open, we will get through these turbulent times – together.
