ZipX donates 5,000 masks to frontline workers

Courier firm ZipX Bermuda has donated 5,000 face masks to the Bermuda Government for the island's frontline workers.

Additionally, the company is supplying customers with complimentary face masks with every package they deliver.

Kevin Smith, managing director at ZipX, said the firm had delivered essential items to customers during lockdown.

“We quickly realised the urgent need for PPE, not only for our staff, but for all of Bermuda's frontline workers.

“It became obvious that there was a shortage of PPE in Bermuda at that time, and as a courier service we knew we could help.

“We are also happy to provide free face masks to each of our customers when we deliver a package to them. The ZipX team is doing its part to help Bermuda stay healthy and flatten the curve.”

Lisa Furtado, customer service manager, said: “All of our delivery staff are wearing PPE and we hope that will provide an added level of confidence to our customers. Our goal is to make the process as easy and as seamless as possible for our customers with no person-to-person interaction.”
