Though economic recovery is gaining traction, there are many signs of sustained pressure on global supply chains. With capacities severely impacted by factors such as the extended lockdowns, labor shortages, protectionist measures and increased demand for transparency, the resurgence of consumer demand is met with rising prices and, in some cases, limited product availability. Supply chain disruptions are the new normal and require close collaboration among companies’ teams in developing sound and sustainable solutions.
