The Shipping Dilemma: Limiting the Disruption in a Post-COVID World
Of the many lessons learned from COVID, the fragility of supply chains was a wake-up call for U.S. manufacturers. Manufacturers in nearly every industry are suffering from the effects of a globally disrupted supply chain including procurement of raw materials, overseas manufacturing capacity, container availability, driver shortages, limited shipping volume and port restrictions on both sides of the Pacific. Demand for goods in the post-COVID world are high as consumers re-engage leading to frustrations for manufacturers as they try to meet the demand for their products and maintain pricing models. In this webinar, Russ Romine, Vice President Global Transportation Services at LEGACY Supply Chain Services discusses the current state of the supply chain environment, what we can expect and best practices for navigating the proverbial, and literal, trade waters.
Topics to include:
- How did we get to this point? COVID’s effect on shipping (land, sea and air) vulnerabilities
- The dock backlog, reduction in shipping capacity and the container shortage
- Continued COVID impact in Asia
- What to expect for the next 12 to 18 months
- Best practices for getting product to the American market
