Companies and their Lead Logistics Partners (LLP), that have been involved in the movement, storage and the flow of their goods, have all been directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Globally, the pandemic has caused disruptions: where thousands of flights were cancelled and grounded which has led to disruption in supply chains, caused potential line stoppages and reduced inventory availability as well as other supply chain risks.
Generally, it’s simple to move goods from A to B when there are no issues, but when things go wrong or during major disruptions you find out what a good LLP can do for you!
During these major disruptions you realise you need a reliable and flexible LLP. When things change swiftly, from one day to another, you need a provider who can predict, react, change and adapt, all at the same time; in order to find solutions for you.
Furthermore, you need an LLP that communicates openly and honestly and offers alternative solutions. A true partner that thinks outside of the box, willing to be flexible and accommodating, who will work with you to keep your supply chain moving.
Yusen has several customers who have been in this position and we have worked extremely hard to ensure our customers’ supply chains have remained fluid.
Throughout lockdown, Yusen Logistics continued to supply urgent healthcare shipments for Mundipharma: “Yusen Logistics has been operating our supply chain during lockdown and I have been extremely impressed with their operations and reactive solutions and communication, which has ensured our supply chain has not been effected” stated Graham Millen (MSc, FCILT), Head of Logistics & Supply Chain Architecture.
