The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the risks of consolidating logistics operations in a single location. To cushion supply chain shocks, multinational companies from Japan, Korea, the US and China are increasingly looking to diversify their manufacturing bases and relocate operations across Southeast Asia. There will be greater demand for logistics companies with strong regional network in the future.
