Corona Virus Statement - March 2020

Dear Client, 

A number of our Clients have asked about our Contingency Plans in respect of Corona Virus. We already have in place a Business Continuity Plan in line with ISO 9001. This details our IT back-up procedures and the advantages of our multi-site operational base which allows the sharing of staff and resources in emergency situations.

We have also put in place a home working protocol (if and when required) but by its nature this cannot apply to warehouse staff.

We are also liaising with and receiving regular updates from our delivery partners.
Further, following the release of UK Government “Corona Virus Action Plan”
here CDL Logistics are fully aligned with the “Contain” phase having advised our staff and colleagues to follow the latest government guidance here .


As a precaution, we are advising against all non-essential business travel. We request that our Clients limit face-to-face meetings with CDL Logistics staff as far as practical and to think about how we can make better use of the video and voice conferencing facilities.


The most effective way for people to protect themselves from Covid-19 (coronavirus) is to adopt good respiratory and hand hygiene to prevent the risk of infection. We have provided our staff with guidance on some simple steps we should all take to help with this here:
We have sourced hand sanitiser and face masks for our staff and we are encouraging their use.

In line with the Government guidance, if the situation develops CDL Logistics will invoke its Business Continuity Plan and react appropriately to any developing situation to maintain, where possible, service to our client base.

However, we should not ignore the unprecedented nature of the current situation and we cannot guarantee the maintenance of our services. It is highly likely that we will see some disruption and delay to services in the ensuing weeks. We only need to look at what is currently happening in Italy. This could be due to government action, action by our delivery partners, local out breaks of the virus, impacts to public transport and impacts to our staff resources (e.g. if schools were closed).

We will keep customers informed via e-mail and via our website.

The Directors
CDL London Limited & Fairway PSD Limited
