TIA Daily COVID-19 Update: April 13th
As TIA continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and it’s impact on the 3PL and transportation industries, here is your Daily Update for April 13. As a reminder, you can find all the latest information, resources, guidance, and news from TIA’s COVID-19 Response Center.
TIA has received updated guidance from the Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) regarding the transportation of hand sanitizer during the COVID-19 pandemic. The only difference between this policy and the original policy issued on April 2, 2020, is an addition to the marking requirements that applies to companies producing these materials under FDA guidance.
These firms are authorized to use the FDA label as an alternative marking as long as the mark is visible in transportation. The authorization applies to highway transportation only.

NOËL PERRY UPDATE:
Saturday was a broadly favorable day, highlighted by a reduction in new cases and new deaths in the U.S. Note that the daily totals for all the large aggregations are below previous highs. This is good evidence that the entire contagion has reached the inflection point.
We’ll be back tomorrow with COVID-19 updates and information that came through overnight.
