Supply Chain Issues in Manufacturing – What You Need to Know

Our team goes above and beyond to overcome obstacles and deliver the highest quality on all of your manufacturing projects.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, supply chain issues have been a hot topic across multiple industries, ranging from furniture and home goods to electronics, auto parts, and even groceries.

There is a wide range of theories as to what exactly caused the issue, and what has caused certain problems to continue for so long, but the truth is that a number of complex factors are involved. One simple factor at the core of the current supply chain issue is that while much of the world was shut down, industrial activity slowed, as did the demand for many products.

Now, as many parts of the world move back towards normalcy, product demand has sky-rocketed, causing a bottleneck for several manufacturers who are struggling to keep up with consumer demand.

Some core problems contributing to this bottleneck include:

  • Lack of raw materials needed to manufacture products
  • Backlog of orders continuing to grow rather than lessening
  • Worker shortages across factories
  • Shortage of truck drivers to transport materials and goods
  • Tightened border controls delaying international shipments

As it stands, those of us in the manufacturing industry are doing everything in our power to continue serving our clients with as little disruption as possible, while also being cognizant of our vendors’ struggles to deliver certain materials.
