During these unprecedented times, people are starting to worry about the supply chain of food and other goods. Grocery stores are working hard to keep the shelves stocked, but still, items like toilet paper and household cleaners are hard to come by.
COVID-19 is disrupting the supply chain, but it’s not just grocery items that are a top concern. Emergency medical supplies, and the raw materials to make them, are being shipped around North America faster and in larger quantities than ever. Trucking companies are asking more of their drivers and more of their trucks, and that means they need more support.
Truckers Work Longer Hours
For certain goods, like groceries, cleaning supplies, and medical supplies, truckers are permitted to drive more extended hours than usual regulation. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has waived the rules regarding the limit of hours a trucker can drive in a single shift. These supplies must keep moving.
If there is an incident that requires heavy-duty towing, Team Pro-Tow can get trucks that are in a pickle, back on the road so they can keep on trucking. If the accident requires a load shift or a load recovery, Pro-Enviro can do that too. Pro-Enviro will also assist with quick and effective spill recovery. We understand the importance of our role as a truck accident recovery and spill recovery company, as we continue to support and service the trucking industry in Washington State and surrounding areas.
Truckers Need Our Support
We’ve heard in the news that rest stops that typically provide a range of services to truckers have closed or are providing minimal services. There are fewer places for truckers to eat and rest. We have also heard stories of truckers being told they may not use the bathroom at warehouses or shipping yards. People are worried about the spread of the virus, but we need to be kind and help truckers as much as we can.
We are in this together, and by taking the proper health and safety precautions, we can continue to support our truckers as they keep the nation’s shelves stocked and medical supplies in the hands of doctors and nurses. Thank you to our truckers, from all of us at Pro-Enviro Spill Recovery.
