GLASGOW, Scotland – After recently reopening its network of branches, AutopartsUK has implemented strict social-distancing measures throughout its headquarters in Glasgow.

This includes a one-way system in its warehouse to minimize the risk of breaking the two-meter rule while distributing parts, as well as setting up a dedicated ecommerce area to encourage customers to purchase safely and securely online, reducing unnecessary contact with staff.

“We’ve had a great response since re-opening our doors and it’s important this demand can be met as safely as possible, which is why we’ve been careful to put these procedures in place and are adhering to Government advice as best as possible,” said Craig McCracken, group factor manager.
