To Our Valued Customers: Smart Warehousing has received numerous requests for a statement regarding the impact of the newly emerged COVID-19 on their supply chains. From an operational standpoint, the basic fear is that a significant number of employees could be unable to attend work due to illness, thus hampering a company’s ability to perform contracted services. With this in mind, Smart Warehousing continues to monitor the status of COVID-19 in accordance with our personnel and disaster preparedness policies. At present, Smart Warehousing is unaware of any cases of COVID-19 at any of our fulfillment locations affecting our personnel or our ability to perform contracted services. For additional information, the CDC has set up a website (Coronavirus Disease 2019, available at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html) to provide information as it becomes available. We value our customers, our associates and our future. We are communicating precautions and awareness to our internal associates and will continue to communicate with you as additional details emerge. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to any of your normal contacts at Smart Warehousing. Please click here for PDF version of Smart Warehousing COVID-19 Statement.
With the coronavirus continuing to spread, you may be asking yourself how to best keep your employees healthy and infection-free.

There are now more than 83,000 cases with at least 2,800 deaths worldwide. New coronavirus cases were reported in Europe, including Spain, Austria, Switzerland and Croatia with some cities in Italy on lock down. There are several cases of the virus reported in the U.S. The outbreak in China seems to be slowing, but if you would like to prepare your business for the possibility of a potential pandemic, see our suggestions below. Communication Work with your HR department to prepare an instruction guide for employees ahead of time to educate them about the coronavirus and ways that they can keep themselves healthy. This material should be communicated through all available channels to ensure that all employees can access it. A couple of great resources to utilize when gathering information include the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Flexibility The best way to avoid possible transmission within your company is to implement flexible working arrangements. This eliminates the potential for transmission not only at the office, but also during their work commute. During this time, take advantage of project management dashboards, chat platforms and other online tools. If this is not an option, implementing face masks, hand sanitizer and proper personal hygiene can help avoid viral infections at the workplace. Reconsider Leave We want to avoid a situation in
