LOGISTICS COMPANIES IN EL SALVADOR MUST BE PREPARED FOR INCREASINGLY FREQUENT AND COMPLEX EXTERNAL IMPACTS.
When considering the operation of logistics companies in El Salvador, the factors that most affect the supply chain are external ones, i.e. those over which service providers do not exercise direct control.
In recent weeks, we have witnessed how a public health problem in the People’s Republic of China has jeopardized the normal flow of products to and from the country. Under most circumstances, such a situation has an exceptionally low probability of occurring. Despite this fact, however, its impact can be extremely negative for consumers.
Generally speaking, foreign trade-dependent enterprises should plan ahead for such scenarios in order to avoid greater consequences that may affect their businesses. In El Salvador, this is especially true given the particular conditions of the country’s supply chain. Every year, for example, the nation experiences heavy rains that periodically cut off important trade routes.
