Warehouse handling specialist Exporta has released a statement in which it says it will focus on key industries in the weeks ahead.
The full statement reads:
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 with equipment for moving, protecting and storing their goods in their supply chains such as plastic pallets, storage boxes and containers, crates and pallet boxes as well as shelving and racking.
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.
This means we are still able to support all businesses with our normal range and our normal delivery service which is the next working day for all stocked lines if the order is placed before 4pm.
PPE – Personal Protective Equipment
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.
