Logistics solutions… We’re here to help!

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, we want you to know that Universal Logistics is doing everything we can to support our clients throughout this difficult time.

Universal Logistics Canada and Universal Logistics USA continue to be fully operational, providing uninterrupted customs clearance, consulting, freight and distribution services to all our clients.  Recent Canadian and U.S. government announcements regarding non-essential business closures have declared supply chain support services (transportation/distribution/logistics) as essential services/businesses in the Canadian Provinces and U.S. States where we operate our own offices (Ontario, Quebec, New York and Ohio).

Universal’s priority continues to be the safety of our employees and a commitment to ensure the resources and services we provide our clients are uninterrupted.  We have a comprehensive work-from-home program currently in effect to maximize the safety of our employee group.  Where a physical employee presence is required, a skeleton staff is on site.  At our offices and warehouses, we are following all safety, hygiene and social distancing guidelines.

Given this unprecedented situation, creative logistics solutions are needed to navigate the new obstacles you are facing, and we are committed to assist you in keeping your freight moving.

We know you have a lot of questions – please remember we’re here to help.  Contact us with any inquires and we’ll assist you in any way we can.  Stay safe!

For more information, contact Mark Glionna, Vice President – Client Relations & Business Development.
