The Shippers Group remains vigilant in our response efforts to combat the spread of the novel COVID-19 virus while serving the supply chain needs of our customers and enabling the distribution of essential food, consumer packaged goods and healthcare products to American consumers. We are extremely proud of our associates for their sacrifice and commitment during this unprecedented time in history.  Our low rate of absenteeism is encouraging, and indicates the efforts of our associates to maintain a safe environment are helping in the war against the Coronavirus.  Safety is a core value of The Shippers Group and is always our number 1 priority.

As the weeks progress, we continue communicating with you via this Weekly COVID-19 Update and keeping everyone informed of our efforts. Our response continues to follow the most recent recommendations of the CDC, World Health Organization (WHO) and the Surgeon General of the United States.
