Toronto, March 24, 2020
Further to the recent Canadian and U.S. government announcements regarding non-essential business closures, supply chain support services (transportation/distribution/logistics) have been declared essential services/businesses in the Canadian Provinces and U.S. States where we operate our own offices (Ontario, Quebec, New York and Ohio). As such, Universal Logistics Canada and Universal Logistics USA will continue to be in full operation.
Universal's priority continues to be the safety of our employees and a commitment to ensure the resources and services we provide our clients are uninterrupted. We have a comprehensive work-from-home program currently in effect. Where a physical employee presence is required, a skeleton staff is on site. At our offices and warehouses, we are following all safety, hygiene and social distancing guidelines.
We are committed to helping our clients in these uncertain times. Stay safe!
