The New Principles of Global Supply Chain Management in the Post-Pandemic World
Global supply chain is increasingly influenced by the impacts posed by COVID-19 pandemic. Because global supply chain is crucial to trade and communications, they pose significant implications to the local, national, and global economy and human welfare. The time has come for a paradigm shift in how global supply chain infrastructures and other key supply chain components plan for and impose new strategies. Additionally, adaptation and resilience to pandemic generate chances to improve regional sustainability and well-being, as served as a typical example by the potential restructuring of the existing supply chain systems. This is feasible only if effective solutions are launched and implemented by efficient collaborative efforts from various sectors and disciplines.
