First for some good news: our supply chains are operational and continue to supply the nation. The battle on this front is surely less brutal than for our front-line health workers, but it is being won. The profession’s solidarity, pragmaticism and ability to adapt should be celebrated. Ports are operating and the digital tools implemented over several years have made it possible for all our customers to work from home. At MGI, we are proud to announce that 100% of our staff are working remotely to ensure 24/7 operation of our services across mainland and overseas France, while providing maximum cybersecurity.
Unfortunately, there is also some bad news: traffic has fallen at unprecedented levels of around 10, 20 or even 40%… How long will this last? Uncertainty will remain well beyond 11 May…
How can we respond? In addition to applying mandatory safety measures, we should make the most of the opportunity presented by this crisis to further increase the efficiency of our work, becoming more resilient and intentional in all that we do. MGI will continue to innovate in the following strategic fields: security, decision-making, mobility, connectivity and environmental action.
