Back-to-School Could Be Derailed by Global Supply Chain Problems
I don’t envy being a supply chain professional over the last couple of years. The global pandemic has created a domino-effect of supply chain problems around the world.
It started off with toilet paper shortages, moved to furniture shortages and now, the upcoming school year could be marred by a shortage in back-to-school supplies.
With growing outbreaks in countries such as Bangladesh and Vietnam, where they’ve had to force new lockdowns including factories, this is compounding the supply chain issues that have accumulated over the last one to two years.
Get ready for a continued bumpy ride (and buy that new backpack for your kid asap, don’t wait for actual Back-to-school sales).
