No one is immune from the shortages that so many industries are experiencing right now. Many overseas suppliers have been hit with container and trucking shortages, as well as rate hikes. To help offset different issues, it’s important to bolster your planning and forecasting algorithms, and to pay close attention to how you are making your vendor workflow more efficient. There isn’t a perfect solution for any shortages, but partnering at a much deeper level with vendors has helped the entire supply chain anticipate and get ahead to a great degree.22 October 2021
