The COVID-19 pandemic forced businesses of all sizes and industries to react quickly to disruption, enact safety measures, and engage in overall crisis management.
The world has begun returning to increased activity, the future will be far from normal. Many of the safety measures adopted in response to the health crisis will continue, in hopes to minimize the risk of any potential second wave of infections.
This is especially true for delivery logistics. Drivers, who engage with customers and other people frequently throughout the day, will have to follow sanitization routines. Businesses will need to ensure that trucks have safety equipment such as masks and gloves.
The added safety requirements present a challenge to management. The relaxation of social distancing and other restrictions might lead to lax attitudes towards sanitization protocols.
