The Impact of COVID-19 on Business
But how has the company fared in the midst of the new COVID-19 crisis? Recently, we interviewed LPR to learn more about the impact that the pandemic has had on the business as well as the company’s plans for managing the sudden supply chain disruptions. When asked about the consequences of the pandemic on their business activity, representatives from LPR told us that they’d actually “seen high demand over the past two weeks - for both the delivery of pallets to customers’ production sites and for the collection of pallets from distributors after use.” They reported that “collected volumes were around 15 percent higher” than this time last year. However, they also noted that “customer volumes into the hospitality sector [have] ceased...an impact that should not be overlooked.” As for their employees, they expressed that they were “fortunate that all of [their] employees are able to work from home and are therefore able to continue...their day to day activities.”
