The coronavirus has already had a huge impact on the freight industry throughout the world and as the situation continues to develop and more countries are affected, DSV is well-prepared for keeping supplies moving.
This is not business as usual for us, our customers, or business partners. There will be disruptions of supply chains, but we will do our part to keep the supply chains open. DSV Panalpina is part of the critical infrastructure globally. We are well prepared for the challenging task ahead and aim to maintain operations as close to normal as possible. We remain strongly committed to mitigate the potential impact on our customers' supply chains as much as we can. All the time while ensuring the safety of our employees and other business partners.
- Jens Bjørn Andersen, Group CEO, DSV Panalpina A/S
The past weeks since the outbreak have shown that we can make no predictions, but what we can say is that we have already gathered much experience, which we are putting to good use in those countries which are now experiencing disruption and even lockdowns. And we expect more countries to follow suit.
As one of the largest transport service providers, we are in a position to acquire additional capacities and divert freight in order to work around difficulties.
