Grindrod supports governments in southern Africa
Grindrod's management is committed to support the governments of the countries in which the company operates, to deliver on their actions, and is working closely with key stakeholders to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and address the long term effects on its business.
The South African logistics provider has established a special task team to monitor the specific requirements and recommendations of governments and their health agencies. This team has developed comprehensive response plans, provides guidance and has implemented the necessary actions focused on ensuring the health and safety of its employees.
Regular engagement with supply chain partners enables the businesses to respond to clarification from the regions on essential trade. Daily meetings with senior management ensure the co-ordination of these business-critical decisions.
The group’s port and terminals businesses expect revenue to decline during April as a result of the lockdown in South Africa and closure of the border with Mozambique. (mw)
