International Conference on
Emerging trends in Supply Chain and Operations (ICESCO)

Lessons from Pandemic: Re-Imagining Supply Chain, Logistics & Operations

Event: July 25-27, 2022 IMT Ghaziabad (Online)

The covid-19 pandemic and multiple phases of full or partial lockdown across geographies has created serious disruptions across the value chain. Past two years have shown glimpses of the VUCA world. Closed boundaries have created shortages of raw material and companies started rethinking on a healthy ratio of regional Vs. Global procurement. Slowed or few times completely stopped manufacturing units were sending ripples in the market. Truck drivers’ issues and migrant workers severely affected logistics & distribution. Supply-Demand imbalances have pushed manufacturers, distributors across the sectors to face various challenges, including commercial, operational, ¬financial and organizational. Adoption of new technology (AI, robotics, ML, Drones etc.) eased efforts of managing supply disruptions, managed big data of logistics and led to unprecedented adoption of digital supply chain. Health care & vaccine distribution challenged the intellects in the last two years leading a debate over infrastructure and network. Sustainability & resilience was the mantra, which led to reimagining supply chain operations with new lenses.

With an uncertainty of prevailing covid-19, this is high time to bring all practitioners, academicians, researcher and policy makers to one platform to deliberate on the theme Lessons from Pandemic: Re-Imagining Supply Chain, Logistics & Operations. Theme of the Conference
