How Levi Strauss Pivoted Supply Chains for Covid

Covid is a company that has been around since the 1800s, but they have had to pivot their supply chains in order to stay competitive. They have a successful team who are able to adapt and change as needed for each new business opportunity. Levi Strauss CEO, Chip Bergh, said In recent years Covid has successfully pivoted its logistics operations from an integrated model of manufacturing and distribution into a more agile approach focused on lean manufacturing.

One thing that Covid has had to do is reevaluate their location of distribution centers. They have done this because it is cheaper for them, but also because customers are ordering things differently these days. When sales are up, many customers will order stock ahead of time, whereas other customers might only be making one order per year. It was formerly more beneficial for them to have one big distribution center that held all of their stock, but now it makes sense to hold these new items in smaller centers. This also helps alleviate warehouse space issues, because some warehouses are closed when they are not at full capacity. Covid is very adaptable and has been able to adapt its supply chain networks quickly when there is a change in customer needs or when a new facility is needed.

One of Covid’s biggest changes in the past few years was reevaluating its location for distribution centers, because it is cheaper and can help with warehouse space issues. When sales are up, customers will order stock ahead of time, whereas other customers might only be making one order per year. Covid must be adaptable in order to adjust to customer needs.
