Putting people first is our normal course of business.

When things aren’t business as usual, we’re here to navigate challenging and unprecedented times with you – together. The Holman Way of doing business guides us to treat our people, business partners, and the community at large with respect and care. That empathetic mindset is the compass guiding our collective response to COVID-19.

We are executing our planned business continuity procedures to support your business needs while taking all measures to keep our communities safe and healthy. In addition to following prevention guidelines from authorities such as the World Health Organization (WHO), we’ve implemented additional continuity procedures to ensure uninterrupted service for your fleet without compromising the safety of our people.

With information changing by the hour, transparent communication is more important than ever and we will continue to update this page with the latest from our organization.

Manufacturing & Shipments Update

Kargo Master and our business partners are closely monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on our industry. We will continue to communicate directly with our clients, and we will update this page with new information as we receive it.

"We value the confidence you place in Auto Truck Group as a trusted upfit partner, and we’ve pledged to always conduct business The Holman Way by treating people with care and respect.

As many industries continue to navigate challenges related to COVID-19 after almost a year of quarantine and social distancing precautions, Auto Truck Group remains ready to support your organization while taking measures to safeguard our communities. Since the beginning of this pandemic, transparency has been critical for decision-making, so I’d like to provide you with an update regarding our operations.

All Auto Truck Group upfit locations across North America are operational with precautionary processes activated so we can support our customers while ensuring a safe workplace. These measures include the mobilization of remote workstations for all applicable roles, and balancing of shift operations. This has led to a reduced volume of individuals on duty at any given time, allowing for increased social distance.

We’re engaging with critical suppliers daily to identify any potential service disruptions. We have worked closely with our production partners and the Holman family of businesses to efficiently manage any production delays. As new lockdowns emerge globally, we are studying trends around the clock and will immediately notify all customers with affected schedules should significant delays come.

Moving forward, we will continue to remain flexible, adapt to changing conditions, and enact applicable contingency plans to support the level of health and availability of resources within our communities. We're also monitoring the status of vaccinations across the nation, as well as globally, to build our strategy for a future where the COVID-19 virus no longer keeps us apart.

Above all, you have our promise to be fully transparent with you always. Our Auto Truck COVID-19 resource page remains updated and open, available for you to check in on news and industry changes throughout the year. I encourage to you to please be well and do not hesitate to contact your Auto Truck Group team directly with any questions."

Thank you,

Pete Dondlinger
President, Auto Truck Group

Prevention Tips

Safety Tips for Vehicle Operators

Vehicle operators are strongly encouraged to take the following precautions:

Everyone should follow the guidelines published by the World Health Organization and US Center for Disease Control to limit the spread of cornoavirus and COVID-19. In addition to those recommendations, we strongly encourage vehicle operators to take these additional precautions:

  • Wash your hands. Vehicle operators should wash their hands for 20 seconds with soap and water every time they stop and exit the vehicle. If soap and water is not available, they can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Disinfect your vehicle. Vehicle operators should disinfect their vehicles by wiping them down with soap and water or a cleaning solution made specifically for vehicles. Do not use bleach or alcohol-based cleaners on leather surfaces, and be careful of getting water or other liquid near electronics. Vehicle operators should wear disposable gloves when disinfecting, and discard them after each use. They should also pay extra attention to parts of the vehicle that are touched frequently: steering wheels, control knobs, door handles, seat belts, and keys.
  • Keep your vehicle neat. Vehicle operators can limit the spread of the coronavirus by limiting the number of items they bring in and out of their vehicles. These items should be cleaned and disinfected, and drivers should wash their hands after doing so.
