It should come as news to no one that the pandemic broke global supply chains, and they remain in need of repair. Container ships are backed up waiting to unload. Shortages are causing massive delays. Capacity is limited, companies cannot find labor, nor can they find the drivers to transport the goods they do have. Add to that the threats of severe weather, cyber security concerns, a failing infrastructure, and lingering impacts of a worldwide pandemic. It is certainly an interesting time to be a supply chain professional. But with each of these threats comes opportunities. We’ll explore it all with industry insiders and thought leaders on The Top 10 Supply Chain Threats, a new, 11-episode podcast series from CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly.
Episode 8: Threat: Supply and Component Shortages
It’s the rare industry that has not been touched by supply and component shortages these past six months. Everything from semiconductors to paper to can bodies has been in tight supply. David Shillingford, chief strategy officer for Everstream Analytics, joins SCQ executive editor Susan Lacefield to talk about how companies are responding.
