The supply chain after the pandemics is not sustainable, and it may subject to numerous transformations. Every entity in the context of the supply chain may experience severe regulatory changes as implementing standard sanitization protocols, enhancing transportation facilities, exploring the innovations in product development & distribution strategies by meeting with demands of human resources are highly crucial.
