The outbreak of coronavirus in Europe, and in particular its intensity, has prompted Kombiverkehr KG
to take precautions in order to ensure that intermodal transport, an extremely important component of Germany and Europe-wide transport chains, will continue to be available in the event that the virus
becomes even more widespread.
We have prepared a contingency plan which contains guidelines for conduct and measures which first
and foremost serve to protect the health of our employees as best possible. We have agreed
preventative health protection measures with all employees at all company locations in order to reduce the individual risk of infection in the company. These measures are based on the current
recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute and the German Ministry of Health.
In addition, the contingency plan provides for measures in all areas of the company, the aim of which is to maintain business operations in the interests of our customers in the event of a quarantine situation at our headquarters or terminal locations. These measures include temporary home-office workstations, remote access to all IT applications by employees working away from the office and the rapid organisation of any necessary diversion of trains to alternative terminals.
We are in close contact with all rail and terminal service providers in order to obtain information about their contingency measures, to identify any impact on our services at an early stage and to initiate appropriate countermeasures. Our primary objective is to deal with the current situation in a levelheaded manner, but at the same time to be prepared for emergencies and to mitigate the consequences and impacts for our company's customers and our staff as much as possible.
