SUPPLY CHAIN UPDATES

At the onset of the COVID- pandemic, many manufactures began implementing production cut backs due to forecasts of an economic decline. However, the opposite happened. Whether through panic-buying or other motivations, consumers continued spending, product demand held steady and even grew in some segments. Even with several countries enacting their own fiscal stimulus packages, manufacturers are still struggling to meet the unprecedented production and logistic demands brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic.

THE LATEST SUPPLY CHAIN NEWS

If there were any doubt of just how dependent our local supply chain is on our global trading partners, we need only to look at the bruising we took with our recent US-China trade wars and our ongoing challenges working through the Coronavirus pandemic. These ruinous events caused regional and national disruptions to our supply chains, and also exposed the vulnerabilities of many manufacturers, especially those who have a high dependence on China - or any “eggs-in-one-basket” scenario to fulfil their need for raw materials or finished goods. Our Supply Chain News section provides both a historic and current view at the influences impacting product availability and pricing.
