DMS Packaging Services preparing for COVID-19

DMS Packaging Services is closely monitoring and reviewing CDC guidelines and State of Illinois mandated guidelines during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. During this time, DMS Packaging Services is also doing its part to educate and help prevent the transmission of COVID-19. We’ve made the decision to limit all visitation to the plant as well as taken additional steps to clean and sanitize our warehouse. These actions are taken very seriously by cleaning crew, office and production staff.  

Office Drop-off
We kindly ask that if you have any packages for the office staff, that you leave these in the entrance foyer. If you need to speak with office staff, please call 847-907-3700 and we will re-direct your call.

If you need to pickup or drop off a load, please go up the driver’s entrance ramp (located next to dock #3) and ring the doorbell. Someone will come out and meet you.
Drivers will not be allowed to enter DMS Packaging premises without a mask covering mouth and nose.
