FORBES: TRUCKERS DISCOVER NEW PURPOSE DELIVERING ESSENTIALS DURING PANDEMIC

2020-05-13

These days we are hearing many well-deserved messages of thanks to medical workers and hospital staff around the world in nations hard hit by COVID-19. But let’s not forget the truck drivers, warehouse workers and logistical staff who keep delivering food, medical supplies, medicine and other essentials during these challenging times.

With Europe on the brink of recession as businesses struggle to keep going and healthcare systems are stretched to the limit, the necessity for effective transportation channels and efficient supply chains is greater than ever before.

“During COVID-19, logistics plays a vital role in delivering the essentials to isolated communities,” says Martynas Sarapinas, CIO at Girteka Logistics, one of Europe’s largest trucking companies. “We have 14,000 dedicated truck drivers working relentlessly to keep supply chains going.”

Sarapinas is referring to the challenge of delivering perfection during the COVID-19 crisis.
