The sudden effects of COVID-19 and ensuing stay-at-home orders hit businesses of all types hard and fast. But there’s one industry that experienced explosive demand in spite of–in fact, because of– the circumstances: logistics.
From online shopping to grocery delivery, consumers turned increasingly to remote shopping for their everyday needs. Making up for the lack of in-person services, demand for delivered goods and services skyrocketed.
With any major uptick in activity comes an increase in risk. Keeping an eye on your fleet and tracking deliveries is more important than ever in the wake of this rapid increase in demand.
And while some of these shifts may be temporary, there are signs that this could lead to some long-term changes in consumer behavior, according to The New York Times. As consumers become more accustomed to the convenience of online orders, there likely will be many who retain this behavior long after the pandemic is over. This drives home the importance of proper logistics monitoring and support for these companies, who can only expect to get busier.
