How big will the coronaviras disrupt logistics flows?

By Steve Geary | 02/08/2020 | 4:33 PM

According to the Washington Post, "China is paralyzed by the coronavirus, which has infected more than 28,000 people in the mainland and killed more than 560. It has also brought China’s powerful manufacturing industry to a standstill as travel restrictions freeze the country’s workforce and major companies such as Boeing, Apple and Nike have been forced to close factories until at least mid-February."

If you rely on China to keep your warehouse stocked, it is time to dust off your Plan B.
