COVID-19 Update From Tactical Logistic Solutions
Over the last few weeks, we have been closely monitoring the impacts of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak on the economy and the supply chain industry. We wanted to inform you that China is starting to recover and expects operation flows to go back to normal in the following weeks.
What do I need to know?
At Tactical Logistic Solutions, we are doing what we can to ensure your supply chain is affected as little as possible. Although COVID-19 outbreaks in the United States continue to rise, we are hopeful that China’s recovery will have a ripple effect around the globe within the next few months. We will continue to monitor shipping in the U.S., but so far see a positive impact in terms of increased production and manufacturing, as more factories and businesses in China open.
- Ocean shipping is starting to pick back up, but always be prepared for delays as blank sailings may still occur due to the impact of the coronavirus. Especially in ports located in Europe, and other areas that are still heavily affected.
- If you urgently need to restock inventory, look into air shipping options for a portion of your merchandise.
- If possible, revisit your sourcing strategies and try to expand your merchandising factories to countries outside of China.
