Some examples of successful conversion strategies in adverse situations include

A public transportation unit

Following a crucial increase in need of staying indoors during the pandemic, due to the high obsolescence rate of the public transport, and low business turnover, public transportation was repurposed to transport utilities and became retail points to those in need of essential supplies. The company has gained in terms of added value operations and improved its economy of scale by outsourcing inventory management to an external distribution center.

Dropping people to delivering essentials

Ride-hailing companies have pivoted as drivers shift from moving people to delivering food and products. As people stay home and can’t go out, they will be demanding more of their e-commerce and local food venues to deliver. Repurposing vehicles to be used as delivery service vehicles has also become commonplace among shared mobility providers

Logistics company business model

To increase the usability and the ROI due to low demand, oversized logistics company, and their business model has been repurposed to serve as a 3rd and 4th party operator, providing tailored services to several customers, the company has gained the best turnover rate, and improved its cash flow.
