The Coronavirus pandemic has hit global supply chains with full force. Due to changing consumer behavior, stranded shipping containers are piling up in seaports with goods that can no longer be sold due to changing consumer behavior. In addition, growing consumer demand for certain goods, for example in the food or health sector, has led to an increase in production. This has two consequences: Currently unsaleable items need to be stored temporarily and companies are having to build up safety stocks to avoid interruptions in supply.
