Measures in place for the protection and care of drivers
In these very challenging times, the entire logistics industry, and particularly drivers, are making a fundamental contribution to maintaining public supply. To support them in this, Schmitz Cargobull has taken comprehensive protection measures at all its production plants to ensure that vehicle deliveries can continue as smoothly as possible. Vehicle delivery is currently possible at all locations in line with local regulatory requirements.
“At each location, we are providing sanitary facilities for drivers, which are open around the clock as far as possible. All facilities are equipped with sanitiser dispensers for further driver safety, and information is provided via multilingual notices on hygiene and social distancing,” stated a company spokesperson.
Driver well-being is also taken into account when picking up the vehicle. Hot and cold drinks as well as various snacks are available free of charge. These are partly handed out from machines or as hygienically pre-packaged snacks.
“All of us at Schmitz Cargobull would like to express our thanks to all the drivers whose commitment ensures that goods transport continues to run as smoothly as possible, and that the supply to all of us is maintained. THANK YOU! Take care and we wish you good health!”
