Safeguard Your Shipments from COVID-19 with Local Delivery

When the pandemic hit early in 2020, no one knew how the world would change. As the severity of the situation set in and social distancing requirements took hold, it quickly became apparent that everything we knew as ‘normal’ was no more.

One of the hardest-hit areas was local economies. Shoppers were restricted from heading down to Main Street to pick up non-essential goods, and restaurants in towns and cities were restricted from having patrons dine in with them. In these trying times, business owners had to develop innovative ways to transform and stay afloat while ensuring their packages were protected against COVID-19.

So, how can local delivery help safeguard packages against COVID-19? Keep reading to find out.
