Supply Chain Disruption to Last Well Beyond Holiday Season According to Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler

According to Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler, “As the peak pre-holiday shipping-season looms over US shippers, businesses are scrambling to secure capacity while trying to determine transportation spending plans for 2021. That is an increasingly tall order in an uncertain economy and transportation market.” 

Cutler will be writing about how freight stakeholders prepare for what many economists see as an inevitable slowdown in early 2021, even as freight volumes are likely to increase or at least hold steady through the end of this year. The likelihood for disruption, as 2020 showed, extends from international container trades, especially the trans-Pacific, to last-mile parcel delivery — the latter likely to face pressure through the fall, starting with the early Amazon Prime Day event in mid-October. Beyond that, the timing of a COVID-19 vaccine, followed by global distribution, not only will throw air cargo and refrigerated supply chains into turmoil but could be the trigger to ignite the next economic rally.
