Freight and postal transport: services in high demand
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, freight transport, its logistics chain and postal services have remained active, but in compliance with the safety and health rules required by the government.
While the pandemic has forced the closure of the majority of businesses deemed non-essential, online shopping and home deliveries have obviously soared. Consequently, freight and postal services need to be maintained in order to meet the high demand from citizens.
Food supply and distribution: essential transport and logistics services
Even during a pandemic, the supply and distribution of food items via truck transport is essential. In order to move food and the various consumer products sold in grocery and convenience stores, transport and logistics services are and always will be maintained in the food sector.
Public transit and paratransit: indispensable services even in times of crisis
Among the transportation and logistics services deemed essential since the beginning of the crisis, public transit and paratransit are on the list of priority activities.
Even if public transit is experiencing a significant drop in ridership, these services must be accessible to meet the needs of individuals who travel with them. However, in order to offset the decline in ridership, various public transit companies have reduced their services by 20% to 45%.
