Coronavirus Info Center

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Center

We launched this section of our website in March of 2020 in order to provide you with the latest pandemic-related information and how the outbreak was impacting global shipments. Since then, we’ve been sharing breaking news, links to relevant expert sources and insights from The Quick Group’s logistics specialists. Though we had been updating this page less frequently as lockdowns and travel bans decreased with the vaccine rollout, we now find ourselves contending with a new strain of the COVID-19 variant, Omicron. We will now be publishing updates as the situation evolves on this web page, as well as on our website’s Service Alerts pages and our social media channels.

And, as always, whenever you have a question or need additional information—whether COVID-related or not—please contact your local customer service office or your Quick/Sterling representative. You can also send a question to one of our global logistics specialists via our Ask the Experts page. No matter how you’d like to connect with us, please don’t hesitate to reach out—and remember that when the unexpected happens, we are here for you.
