Tackling Current Supply Chain Trends

The pandemic changed all facets of life as we know it. In its wake, businesses, especially those in manufacturing, are trying to rebound and return to some sense of “normal.” Unfortunately, supply chain disruptions have become a significant challenge for the economy. Shutdowns of factories in China in early 2020, lockdowns in several countries worldwide, labor shortages, and strong demand for goods have resulted in considerable increases in prices, material availability, and delivery times. 

Long Lead Times and Foreign Suppliers

Supply chains are the lifeblood of most businesses today. Keeping all supply chain components running as smoothly as possible ensures that companies can provide on-time delivery of products and services, especially with changing consumer demands and supply chain disruptions.  With long lead times for foreign suppliers, small domestic manufacturers can be a lifeline for businesses.
