CCA Service Announcement - Australia Coronavirus Update - July 2020
COVID-19 Update | State Border Requirements
There has been significant media coverage over recent days regarding new COVID-19 testing obligations for interstate truck drivers.
The requirements are changing daily but currently South Australia (SA) has implemented a policy whereby truck drivers entering SA must provide evidence of a COVID-19 test. At this stage the testing must be completed every 7 days.
We anticipate other state borders may impose the same restrictions (or variations thereof) over the days ahead.
We are implementing any steps necessary to ensure our drivers will be tested and able to comply with these new and changing border rules.
We appreciate the importance of providing consistent and reliable interstate transport services for our customers and for the economy in general. We are constantly communicating with the various state trucking associations and health authorities to ensure we have the most accurate information on border crossing requirements.
Our teams across the country are working proactively and at pace to ensure that our services are not interrupted. We are confident that we can meet any emerging border crossing demands. If there are any significant changes or impact on our services, we will communicate quickly and accurately with our customers and suppliers.
Thank you for your support and as always, we hope that you, your families and your businesses are safe and well.
