COVID-19 Supply Chain Resources

Supply chain disruption is a major factor right now in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. The customer demand for certain products, and lack of others, is greatly impacting the global economy, from lead times at factories in China to the distribution of consumer goods. Not to mention the impact to hospitals with a surge of patients and lack of necessary resources. Understanding how this risk exposure and long-term supply chain disruption impacts society and supply chain recovery can help policymakers and supply chain leaders make better decisions. All INFORMS journal articles in this collection are free access to the public.  

A collection of research, editorials, interviews, and other information featuring INFORMS thought leaders and their contributions to the public's understanding of the current coronavirus pandemic.
