CHANGES IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN BY COVID-19

Most likely one with higher inventories and shorter value chains. Well, in a long value chain, the chances of an incident happening somewhere on the planet are very high. Now it was everyone’s turn, but when the Fukushima incident in Japan, Japanese suppliers were unable to fulfill orders on time, affecting the downstream value chain.
