1Challenges-Of-COVID19

Logistics companies have experienced how COVID-19 has affected their business instantly just by how certain markets and economies have slowly made travel restrictions, making shipments delivered at a much slower rate. There had been some disruptions on the operations side as some companies had to comply with implementing reduced manpower as well. The current situation of the industry also presents an opportunity to freight forwarding business globally. 

The logistics industry remains to be resilient despite the pandemic as it continues to innovate and rely on offshoring to be able to deliver more efficiently. While the ordinary consumer does not notice this as they can continue to purchase from suppliers or stores as per normal; logistics companies and consumer stores have been working hard to ensure that business maintains as per usual and is slowly going back to full operation and is continuing to thrive with the rise of e-commerce and online fulfillment services. 

The logistics industry sets an example of how businesses can thrive during the pandemic. Here are some examples of how the logistics industry is coping with the impact of COVID-19:

The logistics industry continues to invest in automation, digitalization, and back-end administration services to prepare the business and its staff towards the new procedures and practices in the post-pandemic world. As early as when businesses were temporarily closing up, the logistics industry continued to enhance their services and adjust their business procedures to cope with the world’s response to the pandemic. As businesses continued to shift online, most freight forwarders have also shifted to offshoring their back-end office as well as other business functions to focus on delivering great results to their customers. 

More freight forwarding companies are starting to invest in back-office solutions, freight forwarding management systems like CargoWise One, and other IT solutions through a trusted offshoring partner like Offshore Business Processing. By offshoring some of these services, they can increase their productivity and ability to meet the expectations of clients and the global supply chain. 

For logistics companies, the importance of constant communication with their offshoring partner provides a dialogue in which the offshore team and the business can identify where the pain points will be and how suppliers and consumers can react. The business and offshore team need to know which parts of their supply chains have the weakest links. Logistics companies need to take a step back and analyze processes that are outdated and ones that can be enhanced by integrating with new workflows and automated processes that can speed up deliveries to meet the expectation of customers and clients. 

Your freight forwarding business can also overcome the challenges of the pandemic just by learning and applying these important strategies. By ensuring that your business adapts to the new business practices as early as now, you can continue to provide quality service to your customers as well as increase in profit despite the economic challenges.
