Risks, Rocks, and Rewards – How Shell in the small island of Trinidad & Tobago turned Care for People during the pandemic into a winning formula for delivering exceptional performance.

In March 2020 the first COVID 19 case was detected in Trinidad & Tobago, and Shell’s operations were at significant risk of being negatively impacted because of the remote Caribbean Island location. They needed critical resources, materials, and personnel from all around the world to maintain operations and delivery key projects. Supply Chain would play a critical role in building strong relationships with key contractors to drive the “Care for people” agenda to ensure everyone got back home safely even in the pandemic. Supply Chain would also support major project delivery at a time when it seemed impossible.
