In view of the new worldwide coronavirus pandemic, Cornelder de Moçambique (CdM) is implementing surveillance and prevention actions designed to exercise greater control over the entry of ships from countries with high levels of local Covid-19 transmission.
The measures are further aimed at informing and raising the awareness of all stakeholders in the Beira Corridor logistics chain, in order to more strictly implement the recommendations of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Government of Mozambique during this truly global calamity.
In Beira Port, among other measures, Covid-19 information dissemination posts have been installed. Primary disinfection equipment such as mandatory hand washing is available in places that attract concentrations of people, such as entrance gates, the container terminal, general cargo terminal, truck parking, warehouses and public service locations.
This strengthens mechanisms to prevent the spread of the virus and will minimise the effects of a potential infection outbreak.
All professionals who work in the administrative area of Beira Port, as well as those in the operation area, are instructed to practice mandatory hand washing with a frequency concomitant with the nature of their work, using alcohol-based solutions for this purpose.
Likewise, the observance of safe inter-personal distances recommended by WHO and the reduction of physical contact between people to the minimum necessary for carrying out normal work processes is being recommended.
In coordination with the Provincial Health Directorate of Sofala, all crew members of ships docking at Beira Port are also being screened using infrared thermometers. CdM is in the process of acquiring more thermometers, so that all those entering and leaving the port area can also be screened.
At the same time, and following this series of measures, CdM has also decided to limit direct customer service, opting to conduct by electronic means certain operations that were previously carried out through direct contact at branches.
Cornelder de Moçambique is also temporarily suspending employees’ travel abroad, as well as avoiding agglomerations as a result of operational meetings, training and seminars.Source: Carta de Moçambique
