International Bridge provides electronic postage solutions and small-package delivery services both domestically within the United States and Internationally from China. With facilities in China that process a high-volume of small packages daily, our team was faced with the realities of Covid-19 very early in the pandemic's life cycle. It was devastating to see our colleagues and partners deal with the unknown and experience social distancing and lock downs before we began to understand the global impacts that were just around the corner.
We now have multiple cities in the U.S. faced with the grim circumstances and a new reality. Recently, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo rallied individuals to "show up" and make a difference:
"This is going to be one of those moment they're going to write about and they're going to talk about for generations. This is a moment that is going to change this nation. This is a moment that forges character, forges people, changes people — make them stronger, make them weaker — but this is a moment that will change character. Ten years from now, you'll be talking about today to your children or your grandchildren and you will shed a tear because you will remember the lives lost. You'll remember the faces and you'll remember the names and you'll remember how hard we worked and that we still lost loved ones. And you'll shed a tear and you should because it will be sad. But, you will also be proud. You'll be proud of what you did. You'll be proud that you showed up. You showed up when other people played it safe. You had the courage to show up."
As China slowly recovered, our colleagues were faced with the new challenge of watching the pandemic sweep across U.S. And instead of playing it safe, these colleagues showed up. By purchasing hand disinfectant and masks at local markets, these colleagues and partners, without hesitation, expedited shipments of these critical PPE supplies to our warehouses across the country.
Inspired by this incredible generosity and human spirit, we quickly launched Farley.com to help provide PPE supplies to essential individuals who are showing up every day to cook food, restock grocery shelves, or bring goods directly to your front door. Ten years from now as we recount this horrible time in history, we want to remember the courage our colleagues had and how we, as a company, showed up to make ourselves useful during this time of need.
As part of our ongoing commitment to combat counterfeit and fake items, we have conducted a great deal of due diligence into the products that we offer on this site. Our logistics and fulfillment partners have selected manufacturers that showed up early to supply PPE to China and are now supplying other parts of the world with CE Certified, high-quality PPE supplies. Although we are unable to certify these products, our suppliers are required to provide certification documentation and pictures of their products prior to being offered for sale.
As part of our ongoing package delivery business, we have established a rapid fulfillment process and expedited delivery from our U.S. warehouses. Please limit your purchases to what is needed so that we can maintain a supply inventory for others in need.
