From all of us at FLEXE, we hope you are staying healthy and safe during this time of uncertainty. Below, please find a variety of resources to stay updated and informed on how COVID-19 is impacting the retail and supply chain industries. We will be updating this page regularly.

At FLEXE, we have followed the CDC’s recommendations to practice social distancing and have implemented a work-from-home (WFH) policy. We have the necessary infrastructure and tools in place to support telecommuting and have increased internal communication efforts to ensure our teams are up to date and aligned at all times.

Because our business is designed to support remote operations, disruptions to day-to-day business have been minimal and we expect the same going forward. We maintain frequent communication with our customers and warehouse providers, our network of providers is fully operational at this time, and we are committed to maintaining an open line of communications should changes occur.

If you are a FLEXE customer or warehouse provider and have questions, please reach out directly to your account manager.

We will also be providing up-to-date retail and supply chain facts and trends, which you can find here.
