March 17, 2020 To our Valued Customers, With the outbreak of the Coronavirus, we want to assure you that Tiger Cool Express continues to run at normal operating levels. Our company's leadership always felt it was important to have a contingency plan that would allow us to technically support our team working remotely from alternate locations. Although the Kansas City area has not had a large number of infections reported, we felt it was prudent to execute our contingency plan now. We are very pleased to inform you that our team is fully staffed and has all of their resources available as they are working from their respective homes. As a temperature control intermodal service provider, our highest concern is with the health and safety of our associates, customers, rail and dray providers, and of course, our shipping community and ultimately, the end consumer. We will continue our due diligence around providing excellent service while giving our customers the peace of mind that their shipments are safe and secure. Rail and dray operations are continuing to operate well, and we believe we can continue to provide reliable and safe temperature control intermodal services to our customers during these trying times. Our leadership team will meet each morning to assess the situation and to ensure that our team is fully aware of important decisions and information concerning the containment of the virus. We are committed to timely communication so you have certainty around the delivery of your freight. We appreciate your business and we understand that these are very concerning times for your company, as well. I am proud of our team at Tiger Cool Express and we look forward to continuing to service your transportation needs. To your employees and your families, we wish you good health and safety as we navigate these unprecedented times. Sincerely,
Steve Van Kirk Chief Executive Officer
