Supply chains network during a global crisis: Covid-19 emerging challengesAlessandro Cinti, Andrea Sabatini, Gian Luca Gregori
The COVID-19 outbreak emerged in China in November 2019 and spread rapidly to almost all over the globe. It presents several emerging challenges for the global economy. It is not the first time that a pandemic has been tackled, however, it is the first time that policymakers take impactful restrictive measures on the firms following a pandemic. The study posits that the supply chains are particularly exposed to the emerging challenges from restrictive measures and day-by-day changing laws in order to fight the spread of the virus.
Currently, it is almost impossible to outline an accurate picture of the overall situation, not even through analyzing real-time data, integrated with the most important researches on the supply chain and crisis management. Even the whole scientific community is still in turmoil on these issues, trying to produce answers and hypotheses in order to support the entire population to find a potential exit – or coexistence – strategy with the outbreak.#Covid-19 #Epidemic outbreak #Pandemic plan #Resilience #Risk management #Supply Chain
