In Germany it is now compulsory to wear a mask covering both nose and mouth in many workplaces, on public transport and in shops. As a result the demand for protective masks has once again risen steeply. Recently, a cargo plane landed at the international Frankfurt-Hahn airport in the Hunsrück region. The Boeing 747 was carrying around 100,000 medical respiratory protective masks and 4500 protective coveralls from China. This shipment was bound for a wholesaler from Waiblingen who would then distribute them to hospitals and medical institutions. The delivery was picked up by a new Actros belonging to Rudolph Trucking & Handling GmbH. Rudolph carried out the transport job on behalf of the forwarding company Transmaritim International GmbH.

Medical respiratory protective masks have been classed as valuable goods and are subject to special protective provisions and close inspection by the authorities. Sometimes they are even transported with an escort. Since the beginning of the crisis Transmaritim has imported 500 tonnes of protective equipment to Germany which includes protective glasses and visors as well as respiratory protective masks and protective coveralls.
