GIM Digital Truck organised a webinar titled Logistics in the Time of Covid-19, focusing various aspects the logistic sector deals with during and after the pandemic on Saturday.
eJogajog Limited Managing Director Alamgir Alvi and Daraz Chief Operating Officer Khandaker Tasfin Alam participated in the event as speakers while Marketing Manager of eJogajog Abrar Ahasan Chowdhury presided over the seminar.
Speakers highlighted the damage caused by the pandemic in the logistics sector; discussed the way out and the future of the transport sector in the context of a new normal.
Alamgir Alvi said, "The logistics sector suffered a lot due to Covid. In March-April, we had everything shut down. So, we had to find a different way out. The second wave of the virus is to hit the world. Some countries have already enforced lockdown while others are planning to do the same. It, however, seems that the impact on the logistics sector will be in a lower intensity this time."
Khondoker Tasfin Alam said, "It was very challenging for those who worked at the logistics field level during Covid-19 pandemic. The Daraz logistics team, with vigour, continued delivering products at this time by maintaining social distance. Out of many negativities that coronavirus brought, it was a positive change for the business. We recovered the damages caused by Covid in a short period."
"Once it took a long time to rent a truck in person. With the advent of Covid-19, we came to realise the importance of digital logistics as alternative means. It can be the driving force of the transport sector in the new normal," he added.
