COVID-19 Operations ­ March 24, 2020

The world is changing quickly and Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group is laser focused on the food safety of our warehouse, the safety of our amazing associates that are keeping the food supply chain going and making sure our clients’ products get to market.
California is under strict Stay at Home / Shelter in Home policies that affect nearly 40 million people. This is an update on the status here at Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group.
Sierra Pacific and our food supply functions are listed as “essential” in the President’s emergency operations as well as the Federal and State guidelines. We have notified our local authorities so that they are aware as well to support our associates and the drivers that pick up and deliver. Our team is operating at 100% to make sure that we are keeping the food supply chain moving as smooth as possible in these uncertain times.
The safety of our associates and the food product in our warehouse is our #1 focus.
