CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

With the spread of the coronavirus across more than 100 countries, The World Health Organization yesterday declared it a global pandemic. In the past months COVID-19 has created a great deal of confusion and disruption throughout the world to business and to people’s day-to-day lives. Although this is a rapidly evolving situation, it appears likely the virus will be part of our personal and professional lives for the foreseeable future.

Universal Logistics’ priority is the safety of our employees and ensuring that the resources and services we provide our clients are uninterrupted. Our response team is meeting daily to assess the impact across our business and to ensure our contingency planning meets this challenge.

We have a company-wide contingency plan in place and are working with our partners to ensure that we advance best practices to continue serving you under various scenarios, including our employees working remotely.

In terms of prevention, we are reiterating the importance to our employees of following the recommended best practices of

Health Canada

for health and hygiene.

With our established protocols and processes and our commitment to the well-being of our employees, we anticipate that we will continue to meet the needs of our clients. We thank you for your trust and confidence in us as we work together to address this situation.

We will continue to communicate with you on developments as applicable.
