The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the resulting government measures – lockdowns, social distancing and enforced closures of shops and restaurants – are an existential threat to physical retail.

 

The unpredictability over consumer habits has put the onus on retailers to cater to variable levels of online demand. Having logistics operations that are able to scale up and down as demand varies will remain crucial.

 

This report looks firstly at the immediate impact of Covid-19 had on logistics and supply chains, then examines the permanent changes that will result.


Included in the whitepaper:

  • The immediate impact of operating during the pandemic
  • Using the store as a warehouse
  • Taking advantage of Pop-up warehouse space
  • How to manage unpredictability
  • Operating a warehouse safely
  • Dealing with the returns question
  • The long view: The new flexibility of supply chains
  • What impact will robotics have on logistics
  • Is flexible manufacturing a silver bullet?
