COVID-19 Update

20 March 2020 - At Trafigura we are working hard to maintain our service to our customers and our complex global supply chains of commodities, while continuing to prioritise the health of our employees and contractors during these challenging times.

We are following the outbreak of the coronavirus closely. We have a well-established business continuity plan that has been adapted by site and/or business line. We are taking guidance from advice issued by governments and international organisations.  Each day, our coronavirus working group is reviewing whether we should take additional actions.

Extensive precautionary measures have been taken to reduce the risk of infection within and around our working environment.  Following our business continuity plan and advice from governments, many locations worldwide are applying a social-spacing policy including some office-based employees working from home, or offsite at business continuity facilities. 

Some of our industrial operations are being affected. Our overriding priority is to maintain safe operations and critical tasks that need to be continued.

Through leveraging our logistics expertise and by keeping in close contact with our diversified supplier and customer base, we are well-placed to adapt fast to changing circumstances and disruptions.

We wish to thank our employees, those we work alongside, as well as the customers and countries that we serve, for their continued commitment, resourcefulness and resilience. 

Further updates will be published in due course.
