COVID-19

We are most certainly in unprecedented times. Truckers and transportation operations were essential pre-COVID-19 as much as they have been marked as essential during the 2020 Pandemic.

We are most certainly in unprecedented times. Truckers and transportation operations were essential pre-COVID-19 as much as they have been marked as essential during the 2020 Pandemic.

Regardless of being deemed an essential business in the wake of a world-wide shut down and stay-at-home orders, the transportation logistics and trucking industries have had to modify and pivot moving forward in the new environment created by a pandemic. With many financial and production forecasts thrown out of the window early in 2020, many experts have weighed in on what they predict it will mean for the industry in the near and far future.

While we recommend visiting the CDC and WHO‘s official websites for the latest COVID-19 information, we have monitored and curated the below articles relating to COVID-19 and small businesses in our industry.
