WHO (2020) highlights that it is a big challenge to keep smooth supplies of food and medical instruments, including masks and medicine. Importantly, COVID-19 is revealing deep interconnections between pandemics supply chain management in unforeseen ways. Examples of negative outcomes include, among many others, the difficulty of ramping medical product manufacturing capacity up, quick response to the crisis, hoarding of foodstuffs triggering bullwhip effects, as well as the fragility of supply chains contributing to overall economic chaos being faced by the world (Ivanov and Dolgui, 2020).

This Thematic Issue invites researchers from the fields of supply chain management, operations management, strategic management, logistics engineering, transport management, and industrial management to submit their manuscripts related to these themes and presenting applied research. Relevant contributions (empirical/theoretical development/case studies/state-of-the-art reviews/conceptual papers) are welcome.

The scope of this Issue includes the below topics, but not limited to:

  • Supply chain flexibility and responsiveness
  • Bullwhip effect
  • Supply chain risk management
  • Technology advancements to deal with risk
  • 3Rs (Responsiveness, Resilience, and Restoration)
  • Digital technologies to influence responsiveness
