The waiting game within the global shipping ecosystem is still on. Does anyone really know when this is going to end? A bunch of experts have a different say on that: some say we can expect it to end by 2022 at the earliest
or even only by 2023
, as some conservative estimate predict.
What other disruptions are ahead of us? We never really know. The entanglement of the global shipping lanes creates a ripple effect making it a little too complicated to scrutinize.
There is one thing for sure though: Businesses are in no position to slack off and wait. They should rather take advantage of whatever resources they can find to build a recovery tactic while working on building resilience throughout each point of the supply chain.
For some, the global shipping crisis is a truly terrible situation to be in as a business. However, let us not discount the wins of other businesses which are taking advantage of the situation to create better service, products, and solutions for their customers.
