In the last year and a half, the COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed our world and our lives. Supply chains and delivery times have been particularly hard hit by the impact of the pandemic. In this blog post we would like to take a closer look at this topic and discuss how companies can optimize their supply chains and delivery times in times of Corona.

The impact of COVID-19 on supply chains

The pandemic has disrupted and slowed down the global supply chain. The global border closures, quarantine and travel restrictions and the increase in the number of infections led to production losses, delays in transport logistics and an interruption in global trade flows.

As a result, many companies have been unable to deliver their products to their customers on time, resulting in large economic losses and a deterioration in customer experience.

How can companies optimize their supply chains and delivery times?

In order to optimize their supply chains and delivery times in times of Corona, companies must implement several strategies:

  1. Analysis and identification of risks in the supply chain

Companies must carefully analyze their supply chains and identify where the greatest risks and bottlenecks lie. This helps them to better respond to unforeseen events and find alternative solutions.

  1. diversification of suppliers

To minimize the risk of supply chain disruption, companies should diversify their suppliers. By working with multiple suppliers, they can reduce the risk of failures and delays.

  1. Improving communication with suppliers

Good communication with suppliers is crucial during these times. Companies must ensure that they are in regular contact with their suppliers and are informed of any changes in production or transport in order to find alternative solutions in good time.

  1. Shortening of supply chains

Businesses should consider shortening their supply chains to reduce delivery times. By localizing production and working with local suppliers, they can reduce dependency on international supply chains.

  1. digital transformation

Digital transformation can help companies optimize their supply chains. By implementing technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain, companies can improve the efficiency of their supply chains and minimize delays.


The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that companies need to adapt their supply chains and delivery times to be able to react to unforeseen events. By carefully analyzing their supply chains, diversifying their suppliers, improving communication, shortening supply chains and the digital one
