While offering end-to-end supply chain consulting and solutions, spare part and reverse logistics services require specialised systems and capabilities. This is because as opposed to a standard supply chain, the demand for spare parts is fairly unpredictable and the current COVID-19 situation has added to the challenges.
Especially during the current COVID-19 situation, many of the major companies are unable to manufacture the required spare parts to meet the business. This is largely due to the shortage of manpower and a disrupted last mile delivery network. Currently, most of the staff members have been encouraged to work from home, to ensure social distancing and as a result, the production of technology has taken a big hit. This disruption in the supply chain could hamper the spare parts logistics market for some time.To maintain and deliver spare parts as needed, even inspite of these fluctuations, while making sure of optimised processes and resource utilisation, is a task surely best left to an expert!
According to a recently released report, the global spare part logistics market that was valued at around USD 42,900 million in 2018 is expected to touch USD 46,800 million by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 1.1%.
There is no doubt that the global COVID-19 pandemic has thrown business supply chains somewhat off-gear. But with lockdowns in various places easing out and businesses gradually getting back to normal, a reliable expert managing spare part and reverse logistics efficiently and effectively, will most likely prove to be a great advantage.
