Transport and Logistics – an ‘essential-service’ and exempt from border closures

On Sunday March 22, the Prime Minister announced further actions to support the social distancing measures already put in place and further protect the Australian community from the spread of coronavirus.

Northern Territory, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania have effectively closed their borders to all outside travel. Please note that Northline and the wider transport and logistics industry are exempt from any restrictions on border closures and for us, business will remain as usual.

Whilst other businesses classified as ‘non-essential’ services will be required to close as of 12.00pm today, transport and logistics is an ‘essential service’ which means Northline will continue to service the freight and logistics needs of our customers across Australia.

We understand that these announcements are moving quickly, and we will endeavour to maintain an open channel of communication with our customers, as and when additional announcements are made.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact your Account Manager.

Regards,

Craige Whitton
Chief Executive Officer
