THE LOGISTICS NIGHTMARE: How Bad Is It, and When Will We Get Some Rest?
Originally birthed as military slang, a logistical nightmare is a situation for which it’s difficult to plan or organize the logistics. Today’s global supply chains are riddled with pockets of weakness and vulnerabilities. Colossal disruptions are present in the container market, shipping routes, ports, air cargo, trucking lines, railways and even warehouses. The result has created shortages of key manufacturing components, order backlogs, delivery delays and a spike in transportation costs and consumer prices. Unless the status quo returns to normal, the outcomes for the global economy may be dire.
