When Covid-19 brought China to a grinding halt, it was the importers, exporters and forwarders who got to see first-hand the damage this virus can have, not just on humanity but also to the economy.
Towards the end of March 2020 when the health fears were paramount, the ACF executive made the decision to secure 65,000 surgical gowns and donate these to the NSW Heath.
ACF CEO Andrew Hurt stated that he hopes it’s the first of many things they are able to do over the coming months as Australia moves out of lockdown and deals with the residual economic downturn. “We encourage all organisations where possible to support fellow Australians at this critical time, whether it’s assisting with emergency supplies, creating a better supply chain or simply donating to a front-line cause; it could come as another small step to help get this country back on its feet. That way, we all win.”
