COVID-19 is impacting everyone worldwide and global supply chains are put under heavy pressure. This accounts for intercontinental supply chains for companies that depend on suppliers from across the globe as well as European distribution network that get disrupted due to demand drops or closed borders.

Next to that COVID-19 also unveils the limitations and bottle necks within current transport solutions used in the industry, for example:
