We are closely monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. An update on how the quickly evolving situation may affect our operations. Contact your local DB Schenker branch for detailed information.
Since the last advisory on Feb 17, there have been no significant change in status on the situation in Greater China. We continue to make efforts towards feasible alternative solutions in order to prepare for market rebound. Please continue to engage with your account managers on your latest plans and projections.
As far as we are aware, there are to date no reports of COVID-19 infections among our DB Schenker workforce.
Most of our offices in Greater China have resumed work with some still under constrained capacities. Tianjin and Wuhan continue to remain closed following the regulations from the local authorities.
Status details can be referred to from the dashboard below:
Taiwan and Hong Kong are business as usual with no major disruption.Almost all Mainland China cities and provinces have extended the postponement of work till Feb 9 or thereafter, with the exception of Beijing, Chengdu and Urumqi which have commenced work on Feb 3. Here, we would like to stress that health and safety is of utmost priority. Even in cities where such postponement is not imposed by regulation, we maintain a strict policy of adequate essential staff and skeletal shifts only.Most of our staff from various Mainland China branches are either working from home or with skeletal crew on duty. Government emergency control measures are NOT likely to change during week 6 (Feb 3-9), but we will continue updating on new developments should there be any changes.
Where local government regulations permit the resumption of work and where circumstances allow, we will be able to adjust and plan adequate resources to respond and support customers’ needs.
Our Business Continuity Plans (BCP) are available to suit the varying needs of all our customers and stakeholders. As always, our network of account managers will work closely with you, should you require more specific and tailored measures under the circumstances.
We stand ready to mobilize our transportation capacity, and together with our customers and partners, support all efforts of epidemic prevention and control and expedite all shipments of critical emergency necessities to the affected regions.
