COVID-19 Update

covid-19 update

To Our Valued Customers:

As a result of COVID-19 many retailers are reducing their hours or closing their doors altogether until the situation improves.

We ask that our shippers please confirm, prior to shipping, that the consignee is open and able to accept delivery. In the event the business has reduced their hours, please note their new hours on the Bill of Lading.

If we are in possession of a shipment that is unable to be delivered, we will be returning the freight to the shipper at the expense of the original billing account or charging daily storage rates to the original billing account until the consignee re-opens.

This effort will enable us to support the flow of essential goods to the businesses and people in Atlantic Canada that need it most. We thank you in advance for your support.

If you have any questions please reach out to your Account Owner or Customer Service Representative.

Sincerely,
Norm Bourque
Vice President, Sales & Pricing

COVID-19 Corporate Policy Update

March 18, 2020

Armour Transportation Systems is committed to the health of our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate. In these rapidly evolving times, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and following best practices recommended by public health authorities and government. We also understand that transportation is critical to our economy and we must balance the need to deliver essential goods and services while not putting any stakeholders in harm’s way.

These are some changes we have made to our business to help combat the possible spread:

  • Cancelled all non-essential business travel and require employees who have travelled internationally as of March 1, 2020 to self-quarantine for 14 days
  • Restricted visitors at all terminal locations
  • Suspended all customer signature requirements upon delivery
  • Provided our staff with the tools required to keep workspaces clean and sanitized
  • Our senior leadership team is actively monitoring the situation multiple times daily and communicating real-time changes to our staff as things evolve
  • Require staff to either not come into work, or to work from home, if they are showing any possible symptoms

As Atlantic Canada’s leading transportation and logistics provider, we are continually reviewing the situation and will take all necessary precautions to safeguard our workplace. We have always put safety first and can assure you nothing has changed. We are hopeful that this time of uncertainty will pass and are grateful to our customers, suppliers and employees as we stand together to overcome this challenge.
