As a member of the European Logistics Association (ELA), CILT has been invited to ask its members to consider contributing to a survey being undertaken by the University of Applied Science Upper Austria, Logistikum Stevr. 

The aim of this research project is to show how companies and their supply chains deal with the effects of Covid-19.

This project consists of two parts. The survey, Resilience of your supply chain in times of Covid-19, is the first part of the research project. The second survey is expected to be distributed in autumn 2020, when, hopefully, most supply chains have recovered from the disruptions caused by Covid-19.

The survey is available in German and English and can be forwarded to colleagues and Supply Chain partners.

The goal of this research project is to show how resilient are supply chains against the supply chain disruptions caused by Covid-19. 

Supply Chain Resilience is defined as the ability of a company to survive, adapt and grow in the face of turbulent changes caused by disruptions. 

Supply chain resilience has emerged as one of the most important drivers of organisational success. In this research project we strive to understand the capabilities that enable resilience in supply chains. 

Turbulent change is characterised by a dynamic and unpredictable business environment. In this research we focus on the current supply chain situation caused by Covid-19.

If you are interested in using the survey exclusively for your supply chain, please contact A separate link will be created that you send out to your supply chain partners. This gives you an up-to-date overview and the current status of your supply chain. A comparison to other supply chains and to all other participants in the survey is also possible.

The responses will remain anonymous and confidential. The data is only made available to researchers involved in this project. Results will be published in aggregated form only. No individually identifiable information will be disclosed.

The estimated survey time is 21 minutes. At the end of the survey, you have the option to provide your email address to receive a copy of the results of this investigation.
