As Lockdown Eases, What Will The ‘New Normal’ Look Like For Businesses?

As the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announces the Government’s plans to ease lockdown and restart the economy, UK businesses look to the future post-pandemic and how they can emerge stronger by finding and embracing a ‘new normal’.

Whilst many would ideally see life to revert to how it was prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, the reality is that some things have changed for good. But this doesn’t mean businesses can’t find better ways to operate to allow them to recover and thrive in the future. And for Crown Couriers, that involves forging progressive partnerships with businesses new and existing that are looking to improve their supply chain to be ‘best in class’.

Since the crisis emerged, many businesses demonstrated versatility and resilience by switching production to meet calls for PPE and ventilators. Around 30% of UK workforce were furloughed or lost their jobs, leading to people from all walks of life and occupations taking on front-line roles, from delivery drivers, to farm workers and supermarket staff. As a nationwide same day courier, we similarly switched focus to provide emergency deliveries to the healthcare sector including pharmacies and manufacturers of life-saving equipment.

But as more businesses now begin to re-open – how do we move forward in a better way using the lessons learned from the crisis?
