Covid19: Worldwide & Local Supply Chain Disruptions
Immediate Challenge for Supply Chain Logistics
Change in demand & supply patterns
- Shut down of schools, offices, malls
- More work, study, quarantine at home
- Incremental shut down or restrictions as new infections / clusters appear
Delivery pattern is changing rapidly
- Consumptions moving to e-Commerce as brick-and-mortar shops shut down
- Consumptions moving to close-to-home locations, as consumptions in urban areas reduces
Impact on logistics
- Significant shock to transportation arrangements that have evolved over the years
- Some areas suddenly lesser demand / other areas large increase in demand
- Business move to cyber channels to compensate business loss in traditional channels
Some Comments from Our Customers
"One of the biggest challenges is breaking down demand visibility into transportation capacity needs"
"Capacity constraints prevents all demand from being met. Need to prioritise demand and whether to do inbound, or outbound or both etc."
“… are starting to restrict trucks to be permitted in some cities and restricting certain truck types"
"Parameters for planning are continually changing, due to daily rule changes making planning with fixed parameters difficult"
Business Need to Adjust in 2 Ways. Quickly.
- Need to react quickly based on existing resources
- Large changes is happening everyday. How do we adjust transport plan daily if customer suddenly increase order or cancel order?
- How many more trucks / truck sizes will be needed?
Preparing for different outcomes
- Understand potential scenarios and prepare resources for different outcomes
- Changes are unpredictable
- Best case scenario (quick recovery) vs worst case scenario (prolong virus spreading)
How should logistics team prepare in terms of transportation arrangements
