Supply Chain Briefing: Lockdowns in China, New Phase of Chartered Ships and US Government Funding for Ports

What's Inside

In Coresight Research’s Supply Chain Briefing series, we examine key challenges and developments on retail’s supply side and their implications for the retail environment.

In this report, we examine how the lockdowns in Shanghai (home to the world’s largest container port), Shenzhen and other parts of China have impacted the already strained global supply chain.

We also look at Party City’s and Costco’s decisions to charter their own freighters, plus the US government’s announcement that it would provide $2.7 billion in funding to bolster US ports and waterways.
