Evaluating Trigger Effects of Covid-19 on Supply Chain Integration

Gülden OralMahmut MollaoğluUmur Bucak

The Covid-19 pandemic affected almost all sectors of the economy. The maritime industry was also affected by the pandemic in various ways. During the pandemic period, the maritime industry experienced such challenges as empty container shortages, port congestion, labor shortages, etc. Different sectors of the maritime industry developed resilient strategies against these challenges. Liner shipping companies also developed horizontal integration strategies along supply chains to control and manage the whole process of door-to-door transportation. In this study, factors that accelerated the supply chain integration strategies of liner shipping companies during the Covid-19 pandemic period were investigated. In this context, the relevant literature was investigated in the SCOPUS database, and 24 articles were examined in a detailed manner. As a result of the literature review, the factors that accelerated the supply chain integration of liner shipping companies were coded through the MAXQDA 20 qualitative data analysis program, and the relationship between these factors was determined.
