The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the strategic decisions of companies in the global economy and supply chains. That is why this study studies the impact of the shortage of ship containers caused by the Covid-19 pandemic on maritime transport and international trade, as well as the importance of risk management strategies to better prepare and conduct research for future supply shortages and disruptions. The research methodology consists of four stages aimed at collecting qualitative and quantitative data and prioritizing research work. As a result, it analyses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic-induced shortage of ship containers on maritime transport and international trade, and the impact of Covid-19 on the company's strategic management, resilience and preparedness. Finally, all stakeholders interested in international trade, maritime freight transportation and risk management will benefit from value- added knowledge and high-quality documentation, which contributes to a review of the current literature in the field of study.
