Carsharing expects an increase in drivers as people refrain from public transport over the fear of catching the virus in stuffy trains and buses. As more people decide to drive themselves to work, there comes a problem of onboarding people in person, which is risky to do in the times of a pandemic.
What a sharing company can do:
Keeping track of the vehicles and drivers in person is canceled, but the cargos still need to get moving. However, it is expensive to give room for fraud in logistics, where the price of cargo might be worth millions of dollars.

What a university/school can do:
