The Shippers Group has been providing updates throughout the COVID-19 pandemic beginning in March 2020 with the purpose of informing associates and customers about our response based on the latest information provided by the Centers of Disease Control. With vaccines available to anyone over the age of 16 and over 40% of Americans now vaccinated, we are entering into a new phase. As a result, The Shippers Group will move our updates from bi-weekly to monthly.
