Abstract: The COVID-19 disruption resulted in reactive and uncoordinated logistics behaviors creating a crisis that impacted the viability of many companies worldwide (Choi, Rogers, and Vakil 2020). The purpose of this study is to suggest how to resolve the issues facing supply chain logistics by first identifying the supply chain disruptions of the past and then analyzing the resulting consequences of these disruptions. We propose to show how fragile the supply chain system in the United States is by demonstrating how existing technologies have not yet been exploited to their full potential, which would help to reduce the vulnerability of supply chains in the United States to new and unprecedented disruptions. We conclude by offering some potential solutions to combat this vulnerability in the supply chain and related logistics by incorporating existing technologies to reduce the impact of future disruptions, whether they are created by policy, by possibility, or by pandemic!
