You’ve probably heard a lot about supply chain issues since the pandemic began. It’s likely your company has experienced challenges getting the products and materials you need. Those supply issues may have had a significant impact on your sales and productivity.
In a press release in December 2022, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) summarized the causes of global supply issues:
“War in Ukraine, increasing incidents of extreme weather, and China’s zero-COVID policy and blockades at vital border crossing policy created the perfect storm, leading to massive supply chain issues that in a global economy found their way to Canada’s shores.”
Through their research, CME concluded that “nine of 10 manufacturers were affected by supply chain disruptions during the course of the pandemic, resulting in $10.5 billion in lost sales.” Those issues created substantial business disruptions for distributors and customers.
