We live in difficult times. People, companies, governments, entire countries, we all are affected by a virus. And we all work together to get through and overcome challenges.
Supply-chain, logistics, transport and retail, they are business verticals placed in the first line of the battle. The supply for food, medicine, materials, products and equipment cannot be interrupted without wreaking havoc. The work cannot be done from the safety of the home and most of the time workers are in the field, in warehouses, in stores or on route, with risks multiplying with every interaction. One infected worker can quarantine entire teams, with no backup.
In such conditions, the actors in supply-chain need to mitigate several critical aspects:
In these times of need, our team will carry-on doing its job and deliver on our commitment to support all actors involved in the supply-chain to improve their operations. In this this particular period, we will support all of them to overcome difficulties and adjust their business models to the new market conditions.
At the end of this period, we will all be stronger. People will rediscover the value of their time and enjoy it more with friends and families. Where possible, work from home may become the new norm and working will be more effective. Companies will use more digital systems and e-commerce to shorten their supply-chain and meet their customers, right there where they are. Life will go on, just with different tools. Because in difficult times, it’s the time when evolution happens.
