Coronavirus Info Center


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Center

We launched this section of our website in March of 2020 in order to provide you with the latest pandemic-related information and how the outbreak was impacting global shipments. Since then, we’ve been sharing breaking news, links to relevant expert sources and insights from The Quick Group’s logistics specialists. Though we had been updating this page less frequently as lockdowns and travel bans decreased with the vaccine rollout, we now find ourselves contending with a new strain of the COVID-19 variant, Omicron. We will now be publishing updates as the situation evolves on this web page, as well as on our website’s Service Alerts pages and our social media channels.

And, as always, whenever you have a question or need additional information—whether COVID-related or not—please contact your local customer service office or your Quick/Sterling representative. You can also send a question to one of our global logistics specialists via our Ask the Experts page. No matter how you’d like to connect with us, please don’t hesitate to reach out—and remember that when the unexpected happens, we are here for you.

Guidance for Travelers to Enter the U.S. at Land Ports of Entry and Ferry Terminals

Guidance for Travelers to Enter the U.S. at Land Ports of Entry and Ferry Terminals

Starting Monday, November 8, 2021, new requirements will go into effect for travelers entering the United States at land ports of entry (POEs) and ferry terminals. For the first time since March 2020, non-citizen travelers will be permitted to enter the U.S. through a land border or ferry terminal for a non-essential reason (i.e., tourism), provided they are fully vaccinated and can present proof of COVID-19 vaccination status. Unvaccinated travelers may continue to cross the border for essential travel, including lawful trade, emergency response, and public health purposes.


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced today that it is extending restrictions on non-essential travel at the country's Canadian and Mexican border crossings through September 21st. The Quick companies continue to provide uninterrupted service between these countries; essential workers, such as Quick/Sterling employees, are exempt from this mandate. If you have any questions about your shipments, please contact your local Customer Service Center.

ALERT: The United States will restrict travel from India due to the devastating rise in COVID-19 cases in the country.

The Quick Group's logistics experts are standing by to coordinate your urgent shipments—please reach out to your local Customer Service Center 24/7 with any questions:
