COVID-19 Outbreak in the U.S. and Canada: Impact on North American Supply Chain Operations

Extended lockdown measures in the U.S. and Canada create further uncertainty for supply chain and logistics operations amid the COVID-19 outbreak

The onset of the COVID-19 epidemic has brought about significant supply chain and logistics disruptions throughout the North American continent as firms and manufacturers scramble to cope with various levels of government-mandated restrictions.

As of April 27, 00:00 GMT, Resilience360 has identified 46 out of 50 U.S. states that have ordered at least some form of official stay-at-home order or mandate for non-essential businesses to close due to the COVID-19 epidemic. At least 19 states have adopted statewide restrictions that remain in effect until May 1 and beyond, while another 21 states have measures in place until April 30 or earlier. In Canada, 8 provinces (including Quebec and Ontario) and 1 territory have ordered non-essential businesses to close down.

This Resilience360 report provides an analysis of the manufacturing sectors heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, most notably life sciences and healthcare, automotive and mobility, engineering and machinery, commodities, and technology. It also takes a closer look at the transport and logistics constraints for air, ocean, and ground freight across the U.S. and Canada, and a state and province-level breakdown of the restriction measures in place, as the crisis continues to evolve.
