Perhaps logistics has never been so important as nowadays when the world has to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. We had to go under self-isolation, and had to learn “new expressions”, such as social distance, world panic, hedge-hopping of the world economy etc. For months we could only order foods from supermarkets, or we had a little period during the day when we could arrange our to-do lists. Although many industries had to close up for a while, ligistics companies flourished.
Logistics is among the most profitable industries, especially these days.
