How do you respond when certainty is in short supply?
The pandemic has had far-reaching effects on supply chains everywhere.
COVID-19 is causing significant impact to global trade and product flow. Moving physical goods is especially challenging. With people in lockdown, and many businesses not operating as normal, the logistics of transportation are becoming increasingly complex – causing real problems for customers.
EY was already working with one of the world’s largest advanced manufacturing companies to improve their supply chain when the pandemic hit. We immediately increased our focus and deployed advanced analytics, including process mining and satellite imaging, to anticipate customer demand while maintaining the flow of goods through key ports.
