Long Term Positive Impact of Covid-19: The sudden onset of the pandemic has essentially interrupted and unsettled social and economic activities worldwide. Initially, while the logistics sector as a whole has been affected by global trade slowdown, the sub-sectors like international CEP have witnessed steady growth when compared to others such as freight forwarding, inventory and supply chain management. Consumers moved to online shopping for clothes, groceries and other items which they would usually purchase from brick-and-mortar shops, leading to a surge in B2C shipments. Moreover, this is corroborated by the fact that lockdowns have made inter-country travel difficult, and due to the high population of expatriates living in the country, deliveries during the festive seasons and other important occasions has led to an increase in the number of express shipments. Thus, growth in the volume of shipments was witnessed during festive periods. This has led to the clear establishment of more trade lanes and information about new companies for the players in the Express Delivery Market. Companies are continuously investing on technologies to make deliveries more efficient and customized according to the demands of the customer.
