|Covid-19; The Transportation Sector-effects, Challenges, And Prospect. by Adejoncy01(m): 12:52am On May 21, 2020|
It is no longer news that the world is being ravaged by the scourge of the Covid-19 pandemic which has humbled its mighties. The transportation industry is no different ball game as the pandemic spares not a single sector of the world economy.
In a jiffy, millions of people around the globe, who eked out a living from the transportation industry have been rendered jobless. A lot of able bodied men and women have been turned to panhandlers as beggary is now the orde
r of the day.
One cannot but agree with me that the transportation industry is a vital sector of the world economy. The difficulty posed by restrictions of movements on imports and exports in most part of the world is/has crippling/crippled economies of nations. In fact, the effect of lockdown on many countries economy is better imagined than experienced.
In this era where movements between countries happens in a couple of hours, no one would have thought that, stepping out from one's room will be a rocket science overnight. Not to mention that of transportation of good and services between countries.
In another light, the transportation challenge the world is facing as the result of the coronavirus could be a blessing.
Countries, especially third world nations are likely to be forced to produce virtually all their own needs if this lockdown is not ending anytime soon. In fact, some have started improvising.
Leaders of developing countries would also be forced to stay within their countries to fix their local challenges instead of junketing across the world.
This might be the paradigm shift the future holds.
