Dear Valued Customers
On Wednesday, 11 March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak an official pandemic.
Given the seriousness of the situation which has proliferated globally, the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic has prompted many governments in different countries to take measures to limit the flow of people as much as possible, with an aim to limit the spread of the pandemic – by way of example, in Europe, the borders within the Schengen area and between the European Union and the rest of the world are partially or completely closed (and this for a period of 30 days from 17 March 20). Further, certain arrangements and specific measures taken by different countries across the world may have an impact on freight capacities, supply chain, the speed of processing operations and/ or delivery time.
We, the Brenntag Group, are endeavouring to do our utmost to keep our global workforce safe and healthy, as well as to ensure that our global-supply chain is managed in a way to minimize disruptions to our customers globally. We are taking proper measures in this new stage to preserve the health of our employees and our business partners while ensuring our operational capacities.
We are closely monitoring this fast-evolving situation. We will keep you updated, as soon as practicable, upon becoming aware of any circumstances including any related travel restrictions & quarantine measures instituted by governments in various parts of the world which will (with a degree of certainty), upon our assessment, render our performances under any agreements with you impossible – in any such event, we will endeavour to work closely with you with an aim to resolving any issues arising therefrom.
The website - https://www.brenntag.com/asia-pacific/en/ will continue to be the main channel for all coming updates.
Thank you for your kind attention.
