The Coronavirus Will Not Affect Your Promotional Product Orders



It almost feels like it has become a trend; after every five to ten years, a kind of epidemic raises its ill-favoured head. For this year, it’s been the novel and deadly coronavirus that has brought life across the globe to a major halt. Not just the people, economies, industries, and different markets are also shaking because of the pandemic. As of April 10, 2020, the number of cases reported in Australia has reached 6,204, with over 54 deaths.

Though the situation is not as worse as some other countries, including the USA and Italy, we need to take social distancing seriously to ensure the virus is contained. The outbreak of COVID-19 could also mean many things for your business. But as for this blog, we are going to explain how this ugly virus cannot contaminate your promotional product orders.

Let’s dive in.

Can COVID-19 Spread Through Products?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it’s almost impossible for coronavirus to outspread through promotional products and packaging, because of its short survivability span. These deadly microorganisms can survive on surfaces, which is why they tend to die during shipments under higher temperatures. As per the findings, it majorly spreads via respiratory droplets.

How Your Promotional Products Orders Will Get Affected by Cov-19?

Most of Austcoast’s garment suppliers have inventories in Australia and the USA in the outskirts. Therefore, we are currently not facing any disruptions in access to raw materials, and our manufacturing operations are as smooth as ever.  

We’ll be keeping a close eye on the issue to ensure timely delivery of orders. However, you should expect some delays in the shipments because of some state regulations and recent bans on transportations.

What Precautions Is Austcoast Taking Against the Spread of the Virus?

The pandemic is a cause of concern for every business in Melbourne, Australia. But we are doing everything to ensure safe order deliveries. Precautionary measures include:

  • Keeping a check on news and modifying business strategies accordingly
  • Keenly abiding by CDC protocols
  • Ensuring all the workers work in proper protection gear in the perimeters
  • Installation of hand sanitisers across the manufacturing unit and office
  • Keeping employees updated about recent safety regulations
  • Requiring sick workers to take leaves
  • Cancellation of all work meetings to minimise social interaction
  • Allowing employees to work from home

These preventative measures will be modified and updated continually as per news about the coronavirus.

We highly appreciate the patience of our clients with this regards, and we are grateful to you for staying our loyal customers. If you want to place an order for promotional products in Melbourne or have more queries and concerns, reach out to us at 1300 100 250 without hesitation.
