22/03/20 – At VPS Trading we understand that many of our customers operate in business field that is deemed essential in the current situation – heating engineers, plumbers and other tradesmen will no doubt still have emergency work they have to carry out.
Currently, we have plans to remain operational for as long as possible. Our main warehouse is currently staffed by only two people who live within households that contain fully self-isolating individuals. In the event one of us, or a member of our household does somehow contract the virus, or begin displaying symptoms that could be associated with it, the person in question will not come in to work and thus avoid contaminating any orders. We are of course following all guidelines in regards to the washing of our hands and use of sanitising products.
At the moment, there have been minimal disruptions to our supply chain, with only a very small selection of our non-vital products becoming short of stock and relatively unnoticeable delays. We are ensuring minimal contact with delivery drivers and complying to what is now becoming a rather standard policy for the receival of deliveries. If there are changes in our supply chain, we will be sure to communicate with our customers and do our best to provide alternative solutions where possible.
Likewise, the majority of our distribution chain seems to be working as normal – we will, of course, be monitoring this going forward and provide updates as necessary.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to get in touch with us by email or telephone.
