Thus, the APB acknowledges the efforts people are making to stay at home. The inhabitants, in turn, are safe in the knowledge that they are being supplied with all the essential products they need, such as food, medicines and other basic commodities.
The video, entitled "For the Islands, For You, For Everyone", also recognises the essential role played by the ports and lighthouses in this crisis, as well as the ongoing dedication of the port community, such as shipping companies, hauliers, stevedoring and mooring services, pilots, government officials and fishermen, in ensuring supplies for the islands' inhabitants. The APB has sent 42% of its staff to work from home, in addition to establishing minimum services and setting up rapid response teams to ensure that the five public ports of Palma, Alcudia, Mahon, Ibiza and La Savina are managed efficiently, as they are an essential part of the logistics chain for supplying the Balearic Islands’ population.
