PDI COVID-19 Business Continuity Plans

To our valued customers, employees, and communities,

As a Canadian company with international ties, we’re closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19. In
addition to the thousands who are affected by the illness, thousands more are indirectly dealing with
changes in their work, school, and community environments. PDI is working hard to ensure we have
business continuation plans in place so that we can continue to serve our customer’s needs. These
include:

  •  Increased ability for employees to work from home.
  • IT resources to manage increased off-site work.
  • Separated shifts to limit exposure of PDI employees.
  • PDI is supporting the 14-day self-quarantine of any employee that has had international travel.
  • Awareness bulletins at PDI facilities.
  • Awareness bulletins posted on PDI facebook, intranet, website.
  • 100% ban on all air travel for PDI employees.
  • All visitors and team members have been asked to refrain from visiting our offices if:
    o They have travelled to any highly affected area or hot spot including but not limited to
    China, South Korea, Iran or Italy or have been in close contact with someone who has
    travelled to those areas at any time in the past 14 days; or
    o They have any reason to believe that they might otherwise have been exposed to a
    confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days; or
    o They are exhibiting any symptoms of infection (e.g. fever, dry cough, shortness of breath
    or other breathing difficulties).

PDI’s number one priority is to keep our employees, our communities, and our customers safe. We’ll be
reviewing our COVID-19 business continuation plans daily from our management team down. Any
changes will be communicated in a timely manner.

PDI has a very strong team of employees and we are very confident in our ability to navigate this difficult
time.

At the end of the day we’re all in this together, stay safe, and if you have any questions please feel free to
reach out to me directly.
Best Regards,

Rick Standish
Vice President

Meet Harold Bezemer

On The Road Again Article: Some people are born into royalty, riches, or fame. Harold Bezemer was born into a truck driving family and was destined to be a truck driver.  His family owned Bezco Trucking and it stayed in the family until 2016 when it was sold after his uncle retired. The way Harold tells it, the job chose him.

Meet Scott Gardner

On The Road Again Article: People choose to become highway drivers for a lot of different reasons. There is just something about big rigs, a big sky and an open highway.  It’s like a calling.  Those who choose truck driving for a career are usually lucky enough to love their jobs. They are happy with what they are doing and not everyone can say that about their work. The driver we are profiling today is one of those guys.  He just can’t picture himself doing anything but driving a truck…something he decided as a kid and the fascination is still with him.

Meet Scott Gardner…Scotty to his friends.

Meet Will Fisher

On The Road Again Article: First Driver Interview – I waited at the PDI gate for driver Will Fisher to arrive back from Buffalo.  Will is driving a 2013 Kenworth T134.  PDI does not slip seat trucks, so Will drives the same truck every day.  It’s been his since it was new and together they have experienced 255,000 kms of road.  T134 is a day cab, which means this truck is used for short hauls.  Will Fisher has been with PDI for nine years.  He started in 2007 as a dry bulk tanker driver in the pellet division, but moved quickly into the chemical liquid division.  When I talked with Will, he vividly remembers his first PDI driver trainer, Al Dee, and the influence on him.  Al has retired from PDI, but still drops in to visit the staff here and attend company barbeques.
