March 13, 2020 in COVID-19 UPDATES CUSTOMER ADVISORY
Customer Advisory – COVID 19 Update: Europe, Middle East & Africa – Employee Remote Work
March 13, 2020
After considering guidance from various national governmental authorities within the region and best practices from the global business community on preventing the spread of COVID 19, we have decided to activate the remote-work option of our Business Continuity Plan (BCP). The focus is on office spaces where employees come into close contact with one another on a regular basis within a confined space.
The action will involve the following offices only:
- Stratford (London), England
- Rotterdam, The Netherlands
- Hamburg & Neuss, Germany
- Dubai, United Arab Emirates
- Istanbul, Turkey
- Cairo, Egypt
- Muscat, Oman
This exercise will begin Friday, March 13th with a planned end date on or around March 31, 2020. Maintaining a stable virtual work environment is a core capability of our BCP, and we expect no interruptions in service due to this action.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this challenging period. Our key account management and customer teams will be coordinating with customers directly, and please reach out to your local APL Logistics representative with any questions or concerns.
As always, information regarding the COVID 19, including Q&A, online training, technical guidelines, preventative measures, travel guidance, etc. can be found on the WHO website: www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus, and we encourage you to reference local health authorities and guidelines in your area.
