Logistics Sees a Rise in Demand Due to COVID-19 as Online Orders Increase - ResearchAndMarkets.com


DUBLIN, Ireland, April 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ResearchAndMarkets.com identifies Logistics as one of the industries experiencing increased demand during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic has caused massive disruption in the global shipping of goods. Ports need to screen incoming goods more carefully, leading to delays. Wooden pallets from China are being destroyed rather than reused, for fear of contagion, creating a sudden demand for that resource.

With online retailers shipping goods directly to customers, businesses must expand their infrastructure for trucking, warehousing, parcel delivery, fulfilment centres and security. Warehouse workers must stay on the job and even increase the workforce; Amazon said it is hiring 100,000 new workers to beef up its shipping operations, but many of its orders will still be delayed.
