Further to Italy entering a total lockdown this week, it has now been reported by our Spanish partners that all schools and universities in the regions of MADRID and VITORIA are now closed. In addition, we are being advised that in BARCELONA schools are starting to close.
Events of more than 1000 persons are being cancelled and sports are being played behind closed doors. Information with regards to Catalonia can be found here.
Currently there are no restrictions to movement of any kind as far as we have been advised, and our partners are all working as ‘normal’, although they are starting to prepare for remote working as necessary.
We are at present unsure what impact this will have on transport to and from Spain as the threat progresses, although if the Italian approach is replicated, all trucks would be allowed to run freely.
We understand that customers will be concerned, and all that we can say at present is that all of our services are still running.
For up to date information, please keep in close contact with our operational departments for information on a job by job basis.
