CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION / Preventive Measures

The Frigo-Trans management takes the development of the worldwide corona epidemic very seriously. The safety and health of our customers and employees remains our top priority. As an integral part of our clients’ pharmaceutical supply chain, we are aware of our responsibility. To date, we are not aware of any cases of infection within our business units. Our business operation is secured by our business continuity plan.

In a first step, all our employees and sub-contractors (who are working exclusively for Frigo-Trans) have been informed and sensitized about which hygiene measures must be strictly adhered to and how they should behave if symptoms occur or suspicion of possible infection is raised. The recommended measures of the WHO are authoritative.

In order to secure the operational business, Frigo-Trans will additionally take the following measures as of today:

  • To separate our staff, a core operational team will be initially deployed as a “back-up” business
    operation unit at our former headquarter location in 67227 Frankenthal. The warehouse there will
    be ready for operation by tomorrow, March 11th, 2020.
  • All operational staff members who get in touch to external business partners are re-sensitized
    regarding hygiene protocols and measures (e.g. correct hand disinfection).
  • As a preventive measure, all employees who are equipped with a laptop are required to take their
    equipment with them after office hours in order to work from their home office if necessary.
  • A weekly warehouse day/night shift system prevents immediate contact between warehouse staff
    of each shift.

The Frigo-Trans management is closely monitoring the general situation in Europe and follows all news channels that provide daily updated information on possible transport disruptions. The above listed measures will be updated whenever necessary.
