This report looks at specific examples of how Asia’s advanced ecommerce environment and the use of emerging delivery technologies assisted supply chains during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.  It examines the following:

  • How ecommerce in China developed as a response to the 2003 SARS outbreak
  • How live streaming and social media have been used to sell food and drink products that could otherwise have been wasted during the COVID-19 outbreak
  • How autonomous delivery technologies, such as driverless vans, drones and AI vending machines have provided last mile solutions to the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • How supply chains around the world might be transformed by technology as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
