• Asked to sanitize their hands before entering ShipSmart™’s premises
• Visitors will be restricted to meeting rooms where at all possible
• We will use other ways to deliver our activities and services wherever possible and appropriate, e.g. use of the website, video conferencing, email
Face to face meetings
