When you can’t manufacture and store your products in-house, your business has to deal with the frustrations and challenges of a disrupted, global supply chain. But what’s causing these issues?
One main challenge is that unpredictable product shortages from the pandemic are causing delivery delays. Last year, over 60% of manufacturers said they dealt with supplier delays, the highest of any other industry sector. The result was delivery times at record highs with relief not coming for several more months.
Another impact of the shortages is increasing costs. And with the majority of the world’s shipping happening at sea, global events like the Ukraine war have continued to push costs even higher. In fact, transoceanic shipping costs increased seven-fold after March 2020, while bulk commodities had even higher prices.
How can businesses avoid these types of global supply chain issues?
