Nippon Express is offering BCP solutions to streamline logistics
The East Asia Region of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. reported that it has begun providing Business Continuity Plan (BCP) solutions, utilising a full range of transport modes, to cope with the various restrictions that have been imposed on logistics within China since the novel coronavirus outbreak began.
The spread of novel coronavirus infections has seriously impeded logistics in China, with the number of flights to/from and within the country reduced substantially, restrictions placed on truck traffic between provinces/cities and restrictions imposed on loading/unloading cargo at international railway stations within China.
Nippon Express, at the behest of its customers, is providing BCP solutions by developing alternate routes and utilising and/or combining various transport modes to help customers maintain their business operations. The company is working with four BCP solutions, which are designed to cope with various restrictions:
