BarthHaas restarts monthly coronavirus reports

BarthHaas restarted their monthly coronavirus report with their January report showing an ‘amber’ situation in Europe regarding business continuity. An Amber rating requires constant health checks and screening of personnel, intensive sanitation measures and separation of shifts and logistics (due to social distancing and availability issues). Further, delays continue with increased costs associated due to extreme shortage of refrigerated shipping containers. In Germany, logistics is highlighted as a ‘red’ situation with minimal contact between external truck drivers (e.g., loading by own employees, documents handed over via a glass window). The situation in Australia is highlighted as all green.
