Covid-19 Task Force tackles supply chain disruption

During the COVID-19 pandemic, flows of goods and services have been dramatically impacted and altered while necessitating new ones. Disruption is global, both supply and demand are affected and both internal and external flows are restricted.

As a key player of Luxembourg public research, the Luxembourg Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management has joined the Work Package 13 Supply Chains and Logistics Research Luxembourg Covid-19 Task Force (WP13).

WP13 has carried out a “logistics networks disruption” survey which highlighted key challenges like sectorial shift in demand, impact on operations, market incertainty and the need for a business resumption plan.

The recently published report provides a broad view of supply chains at large and appraises the potential need for enhancing resilience following the current with an emphasis on the Luxembourgish perspective.
