Cash and/or Carry: The challenges and modalities of delivery in Covid-19 crisis

This project complements the new EU H2020 project, HERoS (Health Emergency Response in Interconnected Systems) also a Covid-19 research project, coordinated by the HUMLOG Institute. While HERoS focuses on disruptions in medical supply chains, this project focuses on retail.

Aim of the project: The aim of the research project is to analyse the aid delivery mechanisms in complex emergencies, especially in responding to the global Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic has caused disruptions throughout the supply chain, resulting in short-term solutions, use of extra resources, and redesign of processes to implement social distancing measures. The project will address changes implemented in the supply chain, especially in-store and in the last mile delivery.
