Update 18 March 2020

Roosendaal, 18 March 2020 – Many countries are taking drastic measures to prevent the further spread of the Coronavirus. The EU countries have decided to drastically limit the possibilities for personal travel to the Schengen area. That is why the Ministry of Foreign Affairs now advises people to stop traveling abroad unless necessary.

Apart from these restrictions at the borders for the movement of people, transportation of goods is still possible. This means that we can still transport your goods throughout Europe. Please keep in mind that there may be delays at the borders due to the controls that are performed. The outside borders of the EU are closed, so we cannot transport your goods outside the EU.

Information about the border crossings: Truck Border Crossing Times.

We have extensive online collaboration capabilities for our employees to communicate with each other and with you and suppliers. We are working tirelessly to help everyone stay safe while at the same time continuing to serve you.

Jan de Rijk Logistics is more than ever committed to support your business throughout the course of this pandemic and to provide continuity of service at all times.

Update 13 March 2020

Roosendaal, 13 March 2020 – The past few days authorities and healthcare institutions have issued more restrictions and regulations in order to contain the Corona virus. In general these measurements restrict the mobility of people. So far these restrictions are not applicable on the movement of goods, however indirectly they might affect operations, production and consumption patterns.

Jan de Rijk Logistics has therefore taken practical measures to ensure contingency of operations and protect our people from exposure. These measures are strictly in line with any directive or advise from the relevant authorities. Our steering group has been installed. This steering group monitors the available information provided by the relevant healthcare and governmental institutions, coordinates the (pro)active actions within Jan de Rijk Logistics and is preparing contingency plans.

Update 11 March 2020

Roosendaal, 11 March 2020 – In Italy, there is a lockdown in the whole country for private travel issued by the Italian Government. We have taken the necessary measures and to date we can still supply our customers in Italy.

Therefore, all our operations (Road and Intermodal Transport) still continue, also in Italy. We closely follow the news regarding developments, and we will inform you of any changes that may be important to you.

Update 9 March 2020

Roosendaal, 9 March 2020 – To date, we have not yet experienced any difficulties in supplying our customers in Northern Italy. With the information as it is known at the moment, we will therefore still operate our transports to Italy on schedule.

Update 28 February 2020

Roosendaal, 28 February 2020 – The Corona (Covid-19) virus continues to spread through Europe. In China we have seen how disruptive and widespread the effect of an outbreak can be on people, but also on logistic services. Still, despite difficulties, transports and distribution of goods remain an essential service. This has to be done responsibly, by taking active measures based upon the latest insights and directions from the authorities.

Important to know: at the moment of this writing no cases of infection are present within Jan de Rijk Logistics. We have had no trips to China in the recent months. We strictly follow the rules of the authorities, avoid travel risks, and closely monitor the movements of our employees. In order to coordinate our efforts a Covid-19 steering group has been installed.

Update 26 February 2020

Roosendaal, 26 February 2020 – The Italian government has taken action against the Coronavirus in Italy. There is currently an entry and exit ban in ‘Red Zones’ in Italy.
