Safety in Operations
We are monitoring the situation closely and adopting recommended safety precautions from the CDC and WHO for the protection of our staff and customers. Steps we are taking include updating our warehouse operations to keep products flowing as safely as possible to our customers who are on the front lines.
These changes include daily sanitisation and deep cleans, reconfiguring our picking and packing operations to maintain social distancing, as well as a dramatic alteration in our staffing plan to keep concurrent staff on site to a bare minimum.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you anticipate supply shortages?
A: We are well stocked to meet your needs and confident that we will remain so. Our robust, diversified supply chain originates from U.S. domestic suppliers and various other regions that have not been significantly impacted by the coronavirus. While Chinese factories experienced delays after the Chinese New Year, our Chinese suppliers are now running above 60-percent capacity. With increased demand, we may experience some product delays or shortages. However, we anticipate we will be back to our normal supply chain by mid-to-late summer of this year.
Q: How are you handling products and product inspections in regards to the virus?
A: We are relying on the CDC for guidance and following normal inspection protocols for products unless the CDC releases a statement outlining a different procedure. Dr. Nancy Messonnier, Director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) at the Center for Disease Control, has stated, "In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very, very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures."
Q: Can the virus be transmitted from imported products?
A: The CDC has stated, "There's no evidence to support transmission of the virus via imported goods." The World Health Organization (WHO) also confirms stating, "Even though the new coronavirus can stay on surfaces for a few hours or up to several says (depending on the type of surface), it is very unlikely that the virus will persist on the surface after being moved, traveled, and exposed to different conditions and temperatures."
Q: What safety precautions and sanitation steps are you taking in your distribution center?
A: We are adhering to strict safety precautions at all our locations. It is mandatory for our warehouse employees to wear masks and gloves whenever on the premises. All shifts are broken into groups of less than 10 people, with each employee maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart from each other. We utilize plexiglass coverage at every packing station. Heavy sanitation and cleaning takes place at the end of every shift.
