How did the Covid-19 pandemic impact the business turnover / daily operations?
Before the pandemic / lockdown started, we were transporting a range of goods, from food, to tiles, to buckets etc. When lockdown occurred we continued to transport food as an essential item. Due to the number of transporters and limited loads available that were classified as essential, the loads were more widely spread out, therefore the industry as a whole has less loads; however with one of our main clients, we continued to load food, and thus we were not too negatively impacted. We also started loading hospital beds in this time; therefore overall impact was fairly minimal.

What steps / actions have been taken to combat the effect of Covid-19 pandemic?
The business is fully remotely operational; meaning it can be run from any remote offices / work from home if need be. The tracking and loading systems are loaded onto cell phones and laptops, and can be managed from anywhere. All staff have been provided with necessary masks and sanitizers; they have been instructed to regularly wash their hands where possible / sanitize; as well as remain in their vehicles as much as possible, and social distancing implemented together with wearing of masks at clients / loading / offloading sites.
