Stories of WLC customers stepping-up set a clear example of companies throughout the area using their resources to donate to those in need. And one of the largest areas of need is providing essential personal protective equipment (PPE) to healthcare workers on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s the number one issue for healthcare organizations at this time as hospitals worry that they will continue to face a shortage of masks, gloves, and gowns that doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers need to protect themselves from infection from the highly contagious virus.View
Our nation has been faced with an unprecedented hardship as we contend with the coronavirus pandemic. However, despite the quick adaptions to mandates and the ever-evolving changes, Watson’s logistics customers continue to ship products such as food, medical supplies, and other life-sustaining materials. We owe corporations such as C.H. Robinson, Geodis, and Atalanta Corporation our gratitude.
As shipping and transportation companies struggle to manage the pandemic’s growing impact on their supply chains, these three Watson customers are implementing sourcing strategies and risk management to combat the challenges so consumers can still get the goods they need for daily life.
At Watson, we’re excited to announce how many of our customers have stepped up as well as modified their business models and production facilities to address medical supplies shortages due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They’re adapting to help their communities during this challenging time, and it’s a testament to the tenacity and grit these companies possess in times of crisis.
Watson gives a round of applause to corporations such as BNSF Railway, Agility, and DB Schenker. As the coronavirus continues to disrupt life as usual, it’s good to know that these businesses are working hard to make a positive impact.
