Supply chain issues are not anything new, but COVID-19 can be credited for the drastic change the global economy finds itself in today.
Many industries rely on the global supply chain to connect companies to their suppliers so they can turn the materials into the products they sell. Every part of the world has been affected differently by the pandemic as we are all recovering at different rates. The supply chain shortage erupted in early 2020 due to the COVID outbreak along with an increase in consumer demand. The backlog, closing of factories, labor issues, and equipment shortages all combined to be deemed the supply chain crisis which is still affecting everyone today.
