Coronavirus wreaks havoc on Namibian supply chains

Coronavirus wreaks havoc on Namibian supply chains

Coronavirus could deal a fatal blow to companies already on the brink of collapse.
The disruption, caused by measures taken to curb COVID-19, is already impacting the shipment of goods to retailers.
Some Namibian trucks are reportedly already stuck at the South Africa-Botswana borders.
Blaauw’s Transport is one of the logistics companies whose trucks are stuck at those borders.
The director of marketing and operations, Deon Blaauw told NBC News that there’s a lack of clarity as earlier information indicated that the Botswana border is still open but to his surprise, all trucks are "held hostage".
Blaauw says it is the first time in 50 years that his company have experienced such a catastrophe.
He fears the economic impact on both the Government, private sector and individuals losing income as a result of the impasse.
Namibia has six confirmed cases of COVID-19.
