COVID-19: Supporting the supply of essential goods
25 March 2020
Operating under government guidelines and as a supplier to businesses that are providing essential items, Exporta is focusing on supporting their supply chains to keep goods moving.
The company says: “At Exporta we support many industries, but our key focus has switched to supporting those industries that are supplying essential items to those that need them across the country.
“These industries are food and food manufacture, agriculture, pharmaceutical and healthcare along with the NHS. We have always supplied these vital businesses.
“At this point in time it is as important as ever that these critical services continue to supply essential items where they are needed, and we will support them as much as possible and do so within the Governments guidance and following all recommendations.
“As it stands our operations and delivery service is still operating as normal, we still have excellent stock levels of all product handling items and workwear. All open orders will be fulfilled without delay. Our supply chain and deliver services are still intact and functioning well.”
As a supplier of PPE, we have had to take the decision to ringfence what stock we have left only for our existing PPE customers, critical services and other vital businesses and therefore restrict the supply of these items. Stock is running very low on many key items and this is the only area of our business where a UK wide shortage of products has affected our ability to supply. We are doing everything we can to secure replenishment of these products as soon as is possible.
