Keeping business running
The impact of Covid-19 is affecting all of us around the globe. Together with our customers, we are working hard to keep operations going the best possible way. Whether at terminals and ports, home offices, ocean transportation, trucks and our processing centres, we are here to help support your supply chain challenges.
We recognize that temporary measures taken to deal with the affects, like plant closings and temporary loss of work, impacts people’s lives and livelihoods, and our thoughts are with everyone affected.
To ensure safety for our employees we are taking every precaution to ensure safe working environments and social distancing through adjusting the work environment and processes following governmental guidance and best practises.
Navigating the new normal
"The health and safety of employees and restoring supply chains for our customers are key priorities as the new normal takes effect", says Mike Hynekamp, chief operating officer
The global picture
30 July 2020
Thanks to great cooperation with our customers and business partners, we are glad to see that we’ve been able to uphold a steady flow of sailings and operations across our land-based facilities through the Covid-19 pandemic. Working together across the Wallenius Wilhelmsen group brands, we have pooled our resources and managed to adjust to the situation and keep business running in a new way, managing the substantial drop in volumes.
We now see more OEM’s beginning to resume factory production however at low levels as they deal with bringing back workers to a more ‘socially distanced’ work environment, coupled with reduced demand at the present. Our focus has been, and will continue to be, the safety of our employees and surrounding communities, as well as adapt our operations to best meet our customers evolving needs.
These are challenging times, and we look forward to – together with our customers - prepare for a more normalized state of business as factory production resumes.
