Ports Expected To Be Clogged Through 2022

Ongoing port delays and other unprecedented disruptions; with the continuance of rising inflation alongside labour challenges will carry on into 2022. The threat to the supply chain industry continues with short term woes such as holiday sales and delivery disruptions. The long term predicted effects include price sensitivity and consumer spending.

Although there are continued disruptions across all modes of the supply chain industry it is important to note what is particularly affecting the busiest ports across the Globe. The backup at ports are causing significant delays and forcing many companies to invest in expensive alternatives, which is likely to continue through until mid-2022. If you are waiting for rates to drop before continuing with your shipping demands, it would be highly suggested to look into alternatives.
