Supply Chain Predictions for 2022

Supply Chain Predictions for 2022

Here at Team Transport & Logistics, we provide a variety of transport and logistics services for companies in a wide range of industries, from food and retail to construction and mining. We know that there has been a global crisis in keeping supply chains around the world running as normal. Due to transport delays, lockdowns, closed borders and restrictions, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, many industries are suffering significant supply chain delays. Retailers communicate with distributors, distributors connect with manufacturers and manufacturers engage suppliers for materials. Then there is the transport side. There is involvement with shipping lines, airlines, trucking and delivery companies, all of which are facilitated through ports, airports, warehouses, and distribution centres. The pandemic has exposed weaknesses in the operations of Australian supply chains, as well as global supply chains and laid bare many Australian vulnerabilities as a nation with 98% of trade (and most jobs) reliant on sea freight forwarders. As a leading transport company, with advanced expertise, we are here to tell you how we can help your business during these trying times.

Overview of the Australian Supply Chain Industry in 2021

The increase in global demand for goods, in conjunction with the lockdowns, infections of workers, global shipping container shortage, reduction in shipping services and rising costs, have been creating supply chain chaos in Australia. This is not projected to ease until 2023. Freight rates have risen, transport companies struggled with less space on ships, there are staff shortages and in October, the supply disruption was mentioned by 16% of Australian businesses, which was the same proportion as in March 2020 at the beginning of Covid-19. This shows that even before the pandemic, there were issues with the global supply chain and the Australian supply chain and the pandemic simply exacerbated these issues and highlighted the changes that need to be made moving forward.

Supply Chain Forecast for 2022

Like so many other things throughout the pandemic, it’s incredibly challenging to predict how a system as complex as global supply chains, will react to the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic. Shortages in stock and in staff as well as continued delays are expected to continue on throughout 2022 and well into 2023, with some predicting the flow will not be returned to normal until 2025.
