Control the Post-COVID Chaos

Set up a Digital War Room &
Get Ahead of the Latest Crises

Over the last 18 months, companies have seen multiple waves of challenges impact their supply chains. In the latest wave, those challenges are less as a result of COVID-19 directly as they are indirect consequences of the pandemic’s wide ranging ripple effects. Today, hyperinflation and labor shortages are crippling supply lines around the world:
 
  • • 14x increase in spot prices to ship goods from Asia to the US since the start of the pandemic
  •  
  • • 90% of leaders say that labor shortages are limiting economic growth
  •  
  • • 2+ years for labor markets to normalize according to government agencies
In this guide, we review how the pandemic has impacted global supply chains, and we give a playbook for setting up a digital war room to address the latest challenges.
