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 10: Threat: Inflation
After operating in a low-inflation environment for many years, will companies be able to adapt to rising inflation levels? What effect will rising inflation and an uncertain economy have on the supply chain? What can supply chain executives do to prepare? Paul Bingham, director of Transportation Consulting at IHS Markit, tackles these questions and more.
