This training course will examine how the effects of the Coronavirus will force us to manage, and think, differently about warehousing. We will have been through an experience that we have not encountered before where warehousing, part of the supply chain, has suffered due to shortages and, at the same time, excessive demands. Using examples from worldwide experiences this course will produce some solutions as to the future; not only should such an event occur again but also a different way of operations, then organizations will be more able to cope with the unpredictable.
