CORONAVIRUS // UPDATES FROM ITALY

 

Dear Customer,

At Rhenus Logistics we are observing the situation related to the Coronavirus very closely and have already introduced extensive precautionary measures and developed procedures in order to protect our business sites and particularly our employees, if the virus continues to spread.  We have also set up a working group that monitors the situation very carefully, reassesses it every day and adapts the measures accordingly.

ITALY // LATEST UPDATES

(March 25th 2020) 

The Prime Minister of Italy has announced to close down all “non-vital” businesses and industries. In general, this rule does not apply for pharmaceutical companies and businesses which are vital for the food supply chain. 
There is an interim period for companies to finish their current processes until today, therefore please check once again with your customers whether their customers will still be able to receive shipments from today on. 
Our branches in Italy will remain open and will continue their operational services. 
Before dispatching your shipment, please make sure that the consignee is in business and able to receive your shipment. In order to ensure that our supply chains remain operational, we are carefully planning our transportation and warehousing capacities. 
Shipments that can’t be delivered will be returned or stored temporarily - all costs incurred will be charged to the consignor. Thank you for your kind understanding. 
The situation remains critical. The continuing lockdown and the ongoing spreading of the virus is leading to high absence rates of staff - this applies to both businesses as well as to transport companies. First Italian domestic networks are now reporting increasing delays in the distribution.
