How AFP Global Logistics is Responding to COVID-19

We’re living in a stressful and uncertain time right now. People are doing their best to employ social distancing and self-quarantine to help keep the most vulnerable among us safe. There is no question that this is the best course for global health.

However, we’d be remiss not to acknowledge that it’s affecting both local and global shipping. Even Amazon recently announced that they will be prohibiting third party vendors from storing non-essential items in their warehouses as they ramp up to face this pandemic. At AFP Global Logistics, we’re remaining open and available to help with your needs.

Creating Logistical Solutions to Help You Weather the Storm

Right now, a lot of companies have booths and other supplies sitting in storage, at hotels, or on showroom floors across the country due to canceled events. With many states announcing quarantines and shut downs for at least the next two weeks, there’s very little chance that trade shows and other events will be taking place for a couple of months.

We know that storing these materials can get expensive quickly and that can make or break your marketing budget. During a crisis, you need to be able to rely on your logistics company to get your supplies back to you and avoid unnecessary charges and fees.

At AFP Global Logistics, we believe in developing strong relationships with our exhibitors year after year, so we can give them the peace of mind to know that when challenges arise, we’ll be by their side the whole time.

Business as Usual

We will be available via email and phone for the duration of this crisis, working hard to help our clients stay on their feet.

We recognize that there are going to be supply chain problems and delays. Our goal is to help mitigate these as quickly as possible and help our partners come up with alternative solutions when things get complicated.

Additionally, while we will continue to work hard and do business as we usually would, we’re also looking out for our employees. We’re allowing those who are able to work from home to do so and we encourage them to take precautions to ensure the health and safety of themselves and their families.

At AFP Global Logistics, we consider both our clients and our employees to be family. We’re here to work hard and serve both as we wait for things to begin going back to normal. Our intention is to weather this storm out with you and make sure that you have everything you need to be successful on the other side.
