Coronavirus & Your Fleet – Disinfect your trucks to keep them on the road
It will come as no surprise – we are in the midst of a pandemic, with Coronavirus threatening to bring the country to a halt. The number of confirmed cases is rising daily and it is estimated that thousands more are infected without a diagnosis. This all puts UK business under serious threat. As a fleet operator or distributor, it is essential for your business and customers to keep your vehicles on the road. Act now and put measures in place to keep your trailer internals and cab interiors clean, and ensure the safety of your drivers.
Over the last few months, we have received a high volume of enquiries from businesses ranging from local transport firms to large national distributors about vehicle sterilisation. We believe this is always an important aspect of maintaining your vehicles for hygienic and safe transportation of products. In recent weeks it has become absolutely paramount.
According to the World Health Organisation, ‘studies suggest coronaviruses (including…. COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days’. All it takes is for an infected staff member to sneeze or cough, perhaps working with unwashed hands, when loading your vehicles. This can then be transported across the country when unloaded by staff at the destination depot. Regular truck sanitisation and cleaning with disinfecting products can minimise this risk significantly.
At Truck Smart, we specialise in vehicle cleaning and sanitation specifically for the transport industry. We support a national supermarket with a regular trailer cleaning and sanitisation programme, using disinfecting products. We also carry out over 500 interior valets a year. Through this experience, we pride ourselves on being experts in the field. Our range of services can help you to keep your vehicles in the best condition possible, for the safety of your drivers and customers.
