Managing Supply Chains in a Post Pandemic World
It is no surprise that the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the transportation and logistics industry. Companies need to manage supply chain risks better and more carefully than ever before. Driver shortage, rising container prices and port congestions are just some of the after-effects we are seeing in the industry.
In this “post-covid” climate, anything from political changes to weather conditions can cause disruption in the supply chain pipeline. Businesses across the globe are struggling with product shortages and employee shortages. As we learned the last few years, a sudden, unforeseen event (covid, a boat getting stuck in the Panama Canal, covid wave 2, Russian & Ukraine conflicts) can lead to shortages around the world, whether from panic buying or just supplies not being able to reach their destination on time. Combine those things with the labor shortage we are dealing with now, it has been.. an interesting few years.
