Logistics: a strategic issue at the heart of the sovereignty of public and private players

Far from only being a technical subject for industrialists, logistics is really everyone's business, including consumers and citizens. At the end of March, the Ever Given, a container ship weighing over 220,000 tonnes, blocked the Suez Canal. Ten percent of the world’s maritime trade is shipped through the Canal every day. As a result, deliveries were considerably delayed and logistics costs soared by more than 45%. Another key topic is the supply of vaccines against Covid-19. From delivery to storage to transport and vaccination sites, the success of France's vaccination strategy is at stake. Well beyond the public health issue, delay could cost the French economy seven billion euros per week, according to the credit insurer Euler Hermes. These two examples show to what extent logistics, far from only being a technical subject for industrialists, is a matter that concerns everyone, including consumers and citizens.
