DOTCOM DISTRIBUTION COVID-19 UPDATE 4/8/2020

While we’ve gotten into a cadence with the limited resources available in the warehouse, keeping our people safe during the ongoing pandemic is still the paramount objective. In an effort to reduce the exposure risk to the virus, expanded disinfecting and cleaning practices continue. Even with supplies, such as gloves and homemade masks becoming slightly more available, the best safety practice is continued adherence to social distancing standards by limiting the total number of workers in any warehouse area at any one time.

Because such safety standards are being enforced, and because we are being careful about who is allowed into the facility to work a shift, we are heavily relying on our core team of  workers, leads, and managers that we know the best. While keeping this core team healthy and active plays a key role in Dotcom’s ongoing ability to remain productive for you, the limited size of this team impacts our ability to restart the second shift, even though we reevaluate that idea daily.

As a result, receiving, put away, returns, and our ability to handle work orders, which generally require the greatest density of workers, are all functions and services that will have delays. There will be similar delays in response time to Jira service desk tickets as all departments balance the need to process orders and still respond to inquiries.
