During the COVID-19 epidemic, the closing of the plants of numerous automakers and component manufacturers resulted in significant losses throughout the world. Due to a delay in the supply chain and a disruption in the workforce, the industry was experiencing difficult times. Even after the lockdown in India was lifted, Gyration Tyre Ltd, the third-largest tyre manufacturer in the world, struggled to get its operations back on track.

 This case study highlights the problem of Stock lifting from factories and transporting the same to auto manufacturers after the government announced a nationwide lockdown, effective 25 March 2020, due to the CORONA. Since then, Gyration Tyre Ltd, a multinational company that started making tyres in India in 2010, has kept making tyres, but only at a capacity of at least 20–25%. No one has figured out how the whole amount of production was stored at the factory because there was not enough storage space. The other problem was getting people to work together because the production department needed people there. It also talks about Mr Goal’s difficulties of running production shifts. More importantly, it gives the top management of the company a view of the situation and what they can do if there is a pandemic. Also, they will understand how strategic decisions can be made even though the supply chain and labour force are slowing down and being disrupted in a big way.
