As companies across the UK gear up for the final quarter of 2021, now is the perfect time to implement a comprehensive Covid testing programme to keep both your business and your employees safe.
This is especially true for logistics companies. Firms offering transport, haulage and other distribution services will be busier than ever over the winter months, particularly in the run-up to the festive season.
According to Logistics UK, online retail averaged 28.1% of retail sales in 2020, up from 19.2% in 2019. With further increases in online shopping predicted for Christmas 2021, it’s critical for logistics companies to safeguard the golden quarter ahead.
Why should I invest in Covid testing for logistics?
Regular Covid testing in the workplace can help to keep your business safe and functioning, while reducing the risk of illness, and reassuring your employees and their families.
Setting aside just 15 minutes at the start of each shift for Covid testing could be hugely worthwhile. Not least because it might help to identify any asymptomatic carriers who could unwittingly infect other members of staff.
Lateral flow tests are a quick, convenient, and affordable option for logistics companies. They can be performed on-site, with no laboratory testing required. Even better, results are available in just 15-30 minutes.
