Pacifica Trucks Covid-19 Business Continuity Plan - Update1


Dear Valued Partners:                                                                                         

We would like to share with you Pacifica Trucks’ business continuity updates, specifically addressing the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Pacifica is fully operational.

 On Thursday, the California Governor announced a statewide “shelter-in-place” mandate in order to reduce the COVID-19 exposure throughout the communities. The LA and Long Beach Port Complex will remain open. Essential staff are exempt from the order. This includes truck drivers, rail ramp workers, longshore workers and essential support staff. In the Governors order he specifically states that the supply chain must continue.     

 Pacifica is continuously monitoring the situation at the LA/Long Beach Port Complex and will update you should the situation change.  We encourage everyone to refer to the below links to organizations providing information and regular updates on the coronavirus outbreak.

As a valued current and future customer, we would like to share the components of Pacifica Trucks’ business continuity plan, specifically addressing the COVID-19.

Pacifica’s management team has been taking the below steps to ensure our operations remain uninterrupted, while safeguarding the safety of our employees and business partners:

We have separated our teams at our two southern Californian locations (headquarters and operations) and have put in place controls to keep these populations of employees separate.  The concept is, if one of our headquarters associates becomes impacted, we do not cross contaminate the operations’ team, and vice versa.

We also have employees representing each Department working remotely from home to ensure our company stays fully operational, as all our primary operating systems are hosted in “the cloud”.

We shared and implemented information regarding CDC COVID-19 guidelines, background, symptoms and preventive actions for our offices. Also, sanitizing products were distributed and placed at the offices.

All business travel has been cancelled or postponed to avoid office exposure.

The combination of a specific COVID-19 Business Continuity Plan, remote work capability, and the temporary physical separation of our staff and drivers has been put in place to ensure we can continue to deliver our drayage services to our valued customers. All shipments are being continuously monitored. You have 24/7 access to your shipments status via or simply call or email your Pacifica customer service representative. Our team of Port drayage experts are available to support your needs in these times of uncertainty. Pacifica is continuously monitoring the situation at the LA/Long Beach Port Complex through daily HTA news and will update you should the situation change.
