Unseen, uncelebrated - yet vital heroes

Professional drivers, warehouse workers, and shop assistants are the unsung heroes of the coronavirus outbreak. Without them and the work they do, we would not have food to eat.

We would not have enough food to drink. Goods would not have been shipped to supermarkets to meet the increased demands brought on by panic buyers. Patients would not have been transferred to different hospitals where they can get the care they so desperately need.

Most of us probably don’t realise how lucky we are to be able to rely on warehouse workers, professional drivers, transport managers and operators, and everyone involved in logistics, to get food onto our table every day. They show incredible strength but are too often unseen and uncelebrated.  
You don't have to be on the frontline to be a hero.

They aren’t on the frontline fighting the virus, like doctors, nurses and emergency services workers. Because of that, their hard work goes unnoticed and they aren’t appreciated in the same way. There are more than 600 HGV and LGV drivers, and millions of warehouse workers, who are putting their own personal safety at risk by showing up for work and doing their best to meet the increased workflow.

At FrancisKodak we have a lot of respect for those logistics workers who risk their own –– and their family’s health –– for the good of the rest of us, We would like to thank all the drivers who are on the roads now delivering essential supplies to people’s homes, as well as all of our customers who work in this sector. We see you. We know who you are. And we appreciate you. We call on everyone reading this post to do the same.

Show the unsung heroes of this crisis just how important they are to use, and how much we appreciate the work they are doing at this time.
