In a recent message to stakeholders, Snowman Logistics announced that the company is running their operations 24×7 to meet the demand for home delivery of food, medicines and essential goods amidst the lockdown.
However, the company is taking abundant precaution and ensuring strict social distancing of people engaged in the supply chain business.
Commenting on the ramp-up of operations, CEO, Sunil Nair said, “There is an increased demand for food and essentials from our partners involved in pharmaceuticals, QSR and home delivery business. We are going all out to ensure there is no supply disruption amidst the lockdown. It is our top most priority to ensure that food reaches home, and adhering to lock down is better followed by the community by remaining at home. We thank all our team members who are working to ensure that food is delivered to our customers and from there, to the consumers.”
Last week, the Prime Minister announced a nation-wide lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19, with only essential services such as cold storage warehousing and transportation to remain open. Ministry of Home Affairs had clarified that all facilities in the supply chain of essential goods whether involved in manufacturing, wholesale or retail of such goods through local stores, large brick and mortar stores, or e-commerce companies should be allowed to operate.
