The outbreak of COVID-19 has led many companies to transform their supply chain models.
The ever-increasing number of patients has put several communities, ecosystems, and supply chains at risk of danger.
It has been predicted that the pandemic shall have a medium to longer-term economic impact on various industries.
So, to control the spread of the virus, factories have shut down. The consumption of goods has become the least. The travel and tourism industries have already seemed to have lost the game.
The movement of humans has become challenging. Determining the full impact of the virus is unknown for now, but it has affected the supply chain to a great extent.
Supply Chains are facing a challenge like never before!
There have been interruptions in the availability of goods imported from the manufacturing giant, China.
A supplier and a factory are dependent on some other chain of suppliers and factories to yield produce.
For instance, a product needs 200 parts for it to be manufactured, and all parts need to be present at a single point of time.
You see, how a lot of people and things are interdependent?
The disturbance so caused by the regular supply mechanism has led to hindrances in the smooth workflow of organizations.
Despite difficult situations in 2019, the fruit and vegetable industry entered 2020 and by mid-March, the pandemic brought a drastic shutdown in the sales of the larger retail stores leaving the market to look for other channels to pivot quickly.
The US production sector is highly streamlined & specialized.
Most of the produce items are pre-sold and packaged in bulk to meet the specific requirements, which in turn makes it difficult for producers to shift from one marketing channel to another.
All the produce is properly planted, harvested & packaged to be shipped to stores to meet ‘Just in time’ demands making it very difficult to respond to flexibility in market disruptions.
The companies need to be well prepared for the current pandemic and for disasters that may incur in the future.
An approach to a build, resilient supply chain is required.
How can resilient supply chains be built?
Before understanding this, we need to know the flaws in the approach to current supply chains.
Following is a list of issues that are being encountered by Organizations that have led to their inefficient performance with the advent of Covid-19:
The major issue that is being faced by an organization is the lack of proper communication among the varied departments.
This further leads to hindrance in information sharing and analyzing the progress.
There are some tools and systems available, but none were designed to support business processes entirely.
The Supply chain is so stressed that there is a constant need to identify new suppliers- the need for a new source.
E.g., identifying suppliers for a biscuit or a hand sanitizer company.
Hence, the Industries thus lack a mode of online B2B transactions.
Verification has become difficult with the pandemic on the head.
How will a representative verify if the new supplier makes use of slave labor or if his organization has diverse ownership?
There have been Technology gaps in receiving real-time updates across the supply chain. It has led to a lack of verified information from one system to another.
There is a strong need for verifying regulatory requirements and new services need to be practiced.
There are digital capabilities to resolve these issues, but until now, many companies did not feel the need to invest because they could always conduct meeting in person.
A popular feature of this model of the supply chain is the ability to analyze demand using social media tracking.
If there is a peak in demand, the production plan is adjusted accordingly.
There is a direct link between demand and manufacturing in such a case.
The plan is shared with all suppliers in real-time; who then adjust their manufacturing priorities according to the demand.
Meanwhile, the customer can track the progress of the order. He can keep himself up to date with the delivery and manufacturing of the product.
Proactive risk management is taken care of by keeping in coordination with all parts of the business.
Thus the company works with agility and versatility- something that is exactly needed in today’s time.
This leads to happy customers and flowing profits.
The supply chain process design, infrastructure equipment, and information systems are some features that could add value to the customers and can raise the efficiency of the people involved in the supply chain.
Salesforce is one such solution, that lets you implement these features with great ease!
