The transportation and warehousing provision sector is one of the sectors that has been heavily affected by COVID-19, especially shipping services. Restrictions on physical interaction due to COVID-19 have resulted in increased interest in goods delivery services within cities, but have reduced export-import activities due to restrictions on activities between countries.
According to the Minister of SOEs, the transportation and warehousing/logistics sector will be one of the potential sectors in the next 5 years. This sector relies on the trade sector as a sector to support the distribution of goods and also plays an important role in the transportation system to meet the basic needs of the community during a pandemic.
