Covid-19 and beyond.

What turned out to be a couple of weeks to cut down the curve, has ballooned into nearly a year of shutdowns, restarts, and re-closings. Here it is Mid November the 4th Quater of 2020 and there is still much uncertainty.

Here at South West, we have braved the storm to the best of our abilities. By Gods Blessings, he has seen fit to keep us going through thick and Covid-thin.

Interestingly enough, we have not had a single documented case of Covid-19 here at our facility. Though, one of our employees who works remotely, contracted the virus, with all of the symptoms, but was never diagnosed officially.

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have delivered to hundreds of homes. Talked with people with and without masks on. Some actually offended that we entered their home with masks, while others sprayed us down with an alcohol based germ killer. Literally, we were misted outside of a home, while standing on the street, before placing a foot on their property.

We understand the precautions that must be taken to help prevent the spread of the disease. We use masks at every stop, wash our hands frequently, and in each vehicle, we have fresh masks, hand sanitizers just to be extra safe.

We run the daily risk of contracting the virus at every stop, while potentially carrying the virus from one location to the other, without even knowing it. It’s a scary thought.

We wanted to thank all of you who continue to have faith in the American People who are at the helm trying to make things better, by continuing to purchase products and give us the opportunity to support our families as well.

We will continue to be here and continue to do our best to bring the very best service possible.

We will get through this together.

Thank you!

COVID-19 Response in the Transportation Industry.

The COVID-19 Pandemic created opportunities in the Transportation Industry in many unique ways. Final Mile deliveries exploded, as more people stayed at home and ordered more. Medical Equipment sales fell sharply in our own business, as home furnishings went up.
