Effective Friday, March 27th, 2020 at midnight, Minnesota enacted a stay-at-home order through April 10th, 2020 at midnight. Traffic Management has been following that order since the week of March 16th, with most personnel working from home.
We are fully staffed and the trucks are moving.
Trucking remains vital to the health of our economy and the health of our people. We will be here to help you ship whatever you need to be shipped, regardless of whether or not it is an essential item.
Per Captain Jon Olsen of the State Patrol:
“Based on the information from Homeland Security and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, all elements that are part of the transportation industry are allowed to continue working. A broad exemption to the ‘Stay at Home’ executive order is given to the trucking/transportation industry as a whole, as well as to those who support it. The commodity being transported, and whether it is part of FMCSA’s Declaration or not, has no bearing on what is allowed for the transportation of goods under CISA’s guidance.”
Please keep in mind also that we have to keep our truckers and warehouse staff safe too, so please follow the CDC safety guidelines at CDC Guidelines and understand that some of the processes you have in place may need to be altered in this new environment.
During this challenging time, providing our clients with the highest level of service remains our top priority. You can rely on us to meet deadlines, respond to your questions, and address any concerns in a timely manner. We will continue to monitor this ever-changing situation and keep you apprised of any new developments.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to anyone dealing with sick friends and family members at this time. Stay safe and stay healthy.
