We have had a number of calls and emails over the past week regarding Coronavirus and how this will impact on Eurosprint and the Supply Chain.
We are responding individually to clients questions and offering re-assurances and contingency plans when needed.
The Directors are monitoring the situation continuously and following government recommendations.
Eurosprint is not currently affected by Coronavirus and we have options in place to allow people to work remotely should this be the required and sensible thing to do. Thankfully our operating systems are mostly paperless which means we can access documentation and systems remotely without being dependent on printing. We are requesting an increase in communication by email when possible in preparation for remote working. Our head office number is diverted when closed and we have added out of office numbers to all outgoing emails from today. Eurosprint will be available to you via email and telephone whenever needed.
Operationally our Road Freight services are continuing as normal, we have had some minor delays at borders but this is offset by significantly less traffic on the roads. We have seen a large spike in dedicated time-critical transport which is running as normal. Drivers are being asked to stay in vehicles unless advised otherwise. Air-freight is available but at reduced capacity and subject to quotation. Sea Freight seems to be running to schedule.
We are not panicking but carrying on as normal (with extra precautions) and would like to thank all our clients and suppliers for working with us during this troubling time.
