Post-Covid Business Recovery – Guide for International Businesses


We can all agree last year wasn’t as anybody expected it to be. There’s absolutely no doubt about it. Also, there’s no need to emphasize the deep and negative impact the covid19 pandemic had on every single aspect of society. The thing is – we have something to gain from this scenario, although we’ll never be able to bring back everything we’ve lost. That’s a sad yet undeniable fact. Anyway, being too pessimistic about what lies ahead of us is certainly not a good option. International economy suffered much during the crisis and it’s time it gets on its two feet again. In the text below you’ll find a simple guide for international business and everything you need to know about post-covid business recovery. Stay tuned for some helpful information.

What happens after the covid19 pandemic?

Experts predict that the covid19 pandemic will leave some deep scars on the global economy even after it becomes history. After an illness – you need some time to recover and be your old self again, right? Well, the same goes for our global market. Although, it may need more time and sacrifice to recover. With immunization reaching its peak sometime soon (unfortunately not for every country) global economy will have a new start. We’ll be able to see the results pretty soon. Countries whose economy is mostly based on tourism have suffered greatly from the restrictions caused by the pandemic. They’ll be the first ones to feel the effects of immunization first handedly.

Countries whose economies were mostly based on tourism will benefit greatly from mass-immunization and the much-awaited opening of borders.

The role of immunization in the overseas moving industry

In the previous paragraph we’ve mentioned how the covid19 vaccine will have an effect on the countries that are among popular tourist destinations. Of course, the effect of the vaccine on the global economy is manifold. Among others – the overseas moving industry has changed heavily during the pandemic. So, what exactly is the impact of the covid19 vaccine on the overseas moving industry? First of all – let’s just say immunization had a huge impact on it. For example – who’s handling the vaccine supply chain? The correct answer is – freight forwarders, commonly associated with the overseas moving industry. Of course, with great power comes great responsibility. Freight forwarding companies are challenged because not every route or terrain is easily accessible and the covid19 vaccine has to reach every corner of our world. Some experts say that these challenges will improve the industry to a great extent.

Residential overseas moving

The pandemic slowed down the otherwise frequent group or individual overseas relocations. That fact shouldn’t surprise anyone. How will the covid19 vaccine change this negative trend? That is yet to be found out. Hopefully, with borders opening – people relocating internationally will have no legal or any other obstacles in their way. It’s about time people start thinking about future without a serious, gloomy grim on their faces. If there’s a time we must be optimistic – it is right now.

Freight forwarders are the handling the vaccine supply chain throughout the world. The industry is improving day after day.

Global trade and the covid19 pandemic

Even the birds know this for a fact: international trade was seriously affected by the pandemic. Sea and air cargo companies have suffered greatly thanks to the pandemic. Needless to say: trade has gone through big changes. Have you tried ordering anything off the internet in the past year? If your answer is a YES than you must have experienced shipping delays – first symptom of the global trade network going into slow-mode. Some say that the impact of the pandemic on the global trade system was the hardest. Governments all around the world are doing everything they can to get things going again by financially and strategically helping out business owners. This might be the worst battle we’ll have to deal with after people stop losing lives to the virus. The covid19 crisis is by far the biggest challenge of our day and age.

Return to the office?

This a very common question among working people these days. Some economists predict that most companies aren’t ready for a return to the pre-covid19 way of managing everyday business. They did some research and it turns out just 1 out of 3 companies is ready to return to the office. In other words – only 33% of decision makers think that their company has the resources to fully get back into the office. So, yeah, to answer the question in the title: yes, but partially. It’s going to be a slow process, but hopefully – we’ll manage through it without suffering great losses. Successful post-covid business recovery is something to hope for. No one thought regular folks are going to miss going to office every day, but it turns out it’s the truth. It’s safe to say it’s kind of a symbol of things returning to normal. Also, working from home turned out to be problem to some.

A recent business survey says that only 1 out 3 companies has the capacity and resources to get fully back in office. It’s pretty safe to say that it will be a slow process.

And to sum things up

So, that’s about it, for now. Let’s do a quick walkthrough. We’ve witnessed the pandemic hitting the global economy pretty hard, as it did every aspect of our contemporary society. Trade has slowed down, people started working from homes and the covid19 vaccine was a candle in the dark. How will the mass-immunization affect our global economic network? Well, it has already sparked some changes in the freight forwarding industry. Hopefully, the overseas residential moving industry will also profit from the vaccination process. And, of course – the great question: when are we going back to good old office-work? One thing’s for sure: it will be a slow process. Triumphant post-covid business recovery is somewhere in sight, but we’ll need some time.
