The effects of Coronavirus on Shipping and the Global Supply Chain
I’m looking at a very current global issue regarding the 2019/20 outbreak of the Coronavirus (otherwise known as Covid-19) and the impact of this on shipping and the global supply chain – of course the spread of the virus is very much ongoing so I’m focused on the effects to date.
Originating in China, this virus has had a very significant impact on global trade which is problematic as we all share a very heavy reliance on Chinese manufacturing. This has led to many industry leaders trying to figure out how exactly trade products are still going to be reliably shipped to consumers, Coronavirus has caused the global shipping industry to veer off course!
The Logistics of Christmas Charity
I’ve recently celebrated my 4th year working at Alchemy with my most recent role being that of a Recruitment Consultant. I specialise in the supply of talent to the Global Shipping and Logistics industries and as such for this festive month of December, I decided to put together a blog focused on ‘The Logistics of Christmas Charity’.
There are numerous charities internationally, that work hard to deliver donations all year round, however Christmas is a particularly important time of year, when universally, people tend to share a little more generously as part of the Yuletide tradition.
