Coronavirus Update


The rapidly changing situation surrounding the Coronavirus is unprecedented for our industry and the global population. OCS remains primarily committed to the safety and well-being of our employees, customers, suppliers and local communities and we are closely following the guidance issued by the UK Government and health organisations around the world.

We will strive to facilitate timely exports on behalf of our customers, wherever possible as the situation develops.

The World Health Organisation has now upgraded the status of Coronavirus to a ‘Global Pandemic’ and US President Donald Trump has announced sweeping new travel restrictions. This is likely to have a knock on effect in terms of cargo capacity in the coming weeks and months.

Many airlines have announced flight cancelations already and we presume this trend will continue as the situation develops. Parcel exports to Italy are getting through, albeit with minor delays. Shippers can expect to see more significant delays on exports to Chinese consumers. All other routes and destinations are running normally at the time of writing.

We will continue to provide updates as the situation develops and if you have any specific concerns or questions please contact our Sales and Customer Service teams;

Thank you for your continued support from all the team at OCS Worldwide.
