Challenge | Continuity of supply-chain when mobility is limited

Context |  When borders are closed, the entire supply-chain for the companies gets disturbed. Some suppliers and/or customers gets lock down without access to certain transport.

How can a company map all suppliers with relevant data about borders, transport accessibility, delays?.

Case Study #1

Some of the Lithuanian Railways suppliers are in the countries with full lock down. The transport got disturbed and there will be delays. How can you map suppliers and predict our supplies, estimate delivery time, or re-route via alternative transports?

Case Study #2

Lithuanian Post sends parcels abroad via passenger airplanes. When most of the airlines are grounded, how can you diversify your logistics to other alternatives? How can you reach distribution hubs with a limited accessibility? How do you map current situation with your partners?
