Trucking Remains an Essential Service as Canada-U.S. Close Borders to Non-essential Traffic
The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, impacting our lives and the economy. The most important thing right now for all of us is to stay healthy.
This is also a time to act. We know that the current situation is putting pressure on all business owners, your supply chains, your cashflow and your people.The U.S. government has announced that trucking remains an essential service as Canada – US closes borders to non essential Traffic.
We want to assure our customers that we will stay open for you as long our government allows us to. The US has announced a policy that services and repair shops to keep our trucks running will also be considered an essential service. We are hoping government leaders will take this same step.
Westrans will make every effort to continue to support our customers during this uncertain time. We are in constant communication with our supply chain to keep our inventory stocked.
If you visit our store we will be adhering to strict rules on hygiene and social distancing. Our drivers who deliver will also be following strict rules, and of course if you have measures in place they will follow those also. The only change we have made to this point, is to close at 5:00 pm instead of 5:30. Should we make any other changes we will communicate this to you immediately.
Feel free to contact anyone at Westrans if you have questions.
Thank you to our truckers, and everyone supporting them during this unprecedented time.
