How has your business and day-to-day operations changed as a result of COVID-19?
From a freight standpoint, we have been running around the clock to meet the needs of our customers. We have also made the switch to virtual orientation/onboarding to limit the interpersonal contact for all parties.
What inspires you in the midst of these difficult circumstances?
In times like these, our jobs have never been more important. We not only have an obligation to our customers but to our communities. Our teams have kicked it in to high-gear to get products where they are needed most and we will continue to do our part in the fight against COVID-19.
What do you wish people knew about your business and the work that you do?
While our drivers are currently working overtime due to high demand, they put in long, hard hours every day during normal market conditions to keep the shelves stocked and the supply chain moving. It is an often overlooked job that is absolutely essential to America’s economy.
