The abrupt surge in the COVID-positive cases seems to take us back to the days when the nationwide lockdown was imposed last year in India. Now it’s a high time to be more cautious than earlier and break the chain of the contagious virus as several states of India are already bearing with the curfew-like situation. From adapting covid-appropriate behaviour to keeping up with major prerequisite preventive measures, Shift Freight is forever adhering to all precautionary guidelines & rules to ensure the safety of our customers, service partners, and other entities involved in our business operations.
Before the onset of a pandemic outbreak, our ground-breaking initiative to automate the traditional methods of logistics empowered both end-users of our online platform for on-demand packers and movers services. With strategic planning and a tech-inspired approach, Shift Freight has been continuing to meet the objective of conducting ultra-safe relocations with strict adherence to COVID-19 precautions.
BRIEFING OUR WORTHFUL EFFORTS TO COUNTER COVID-19 THREATS SAFELY
In the ongoing scenario of coronavirus spread, it is crucial to consider contactless options for certain procedures of logistic operations. Hence, we are implementing advanced techniques & methods to ‘maximize safety’ and ‘minimize human touch’ during the pickup and delivery of goods. While the booking procedures on our online platform is completely automated, we’ve launched automated ways to provide on-call support, online cost estimations, virtual surveys, & cashless payments to reduce direct contact during the shifting.
In addition to these, we at Shift Freight are also taking multiple precautionary measures to ensure the triple-layer safety of customers as well as the individuals on the duty.
HERE ARE THE MAJOR SAFETY PRECAUTIONS TAKEN BY OUR SERVICE PARTNERS
CONDUCTING REGULAR TEMPERATURE CHECKS OF CREW MEMBERS
Our service partners are instructed to check the temperatures of their staff members on a regular basis. We ensure that the body temperature level of a person on the duty remains below 99.1 F. Any individual who feels sick or exhibits the symptoms related to COVID-19 are advised to stay in home isolation or get treatment beforehand.
GUIDING DELIVERY PARTNERS TO PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING
All the shifting service providers partnered with us are thoroughly briefed about the major COVID-19 safety protocols & ways to follow them. The right-hand rule of social distancing is strictly followed by our shift partners regardless of the locations they visit throughout the shifting process. For better coordination and communication, our packers & movers connect virtually to monitor relocation procedures and avoid physical gatherings.
ENSURING STRICT USAGE OF SELF-PROTECTION GEARS
To fight the highly contagious virus, it is always imperative to “Keep the masks ON till the pandemic is GONE”! Wearing masks is the first step to prevent infection. At Shift Freight, we provide all types of protective gears to our shift partners and guide them to use double-layered N95 masks, facial shields, hand sanitizers, gloves, PPE kits, etc. while being on duty.
PERFORMING VIRTUAL SURVEYS OVER HOME VISITS
We are encouraging our shift partners to conduct online home surveys instead of giving physical visits at the pickup address. By avoiding unnecessary doorstep visits for pre-move surveys, we can prevent the risks of infectious transmission up to the greatest extent.
USING SANITIZED PACKING MATERIAL, MOVING TRUCKS, & TOOLS
As a part of our COVID-19 precautions for the “best safety standards”, we ensure that all the packing supplies, moving equipment, tools, devices, and vehicles (trucks & tempos) used for transporting goods are fully sanitized at the first hand.
Apart from the aforementioned COVID-19 preventive measures, our exclusive facilities of instant online booking, pre-booking estimations, live location tracking, on-call support, digital payments, etc. are truly contactless and safe enough to nullify the risks of transmission of infection. We are also looking forward to bring new algorithms and options to improve safety with our packers and movers services. Till then, stay indoors, stay safe and let’s fight the pandemic together!
