We continue to closely monitor developments with respect to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus). First and most importantly, we have implemented the appropriate actions to continue providing our employees a safe and healthy working environment. This includes working from home and allowing only a limited amount of critical staff in offices and manufacturing locations to prevent the spread of illness.
The necessary measures taken to prevent the spread of illness have caused supply chain challenges for many industries in China and across the world, including Eastman. Like many other companies exporting from China and shipping domestically within China, we are facing logistics and shipping challenges as ports and trucking resources are constrained due to the quarantines in place in individual provinces.
While it is more difficult to confirm available logistics and delivery dates at this time, we believe our global manufacturing and logistics capabilities will keep us well positioned to work through these challenges and, if necessary, to help you put the appropriate mitigation plans in place. We realize this situation remains very dynamic, as information continues to change day-to-day, and we will continue to provide you with updates as we learn more and confirm logistics and delivery dates.
We remain committed to providing the superior service and support that our customers have come to expect of our company throughout this situation.
