What happens when Ford recalls 125,000 vehicles, tension rises between the US and China over chip technologies, and the West Coast port shutdown causes Union Pacific to take drastic measures?
Join us for the news roundup this week as we navigate the complexities of these supply chain disruptions and explore how the Biden administration is working to intervene. Plus, we'll discuss South Korea's efforts to maintain its lead in semiconductor technologies and the Port of Long Beach's ambitious goal to become the first port terminal facility with zero emissions.
But that's not all! We'll also take a deep dive into the global economic trends and environmental disasters impacting supply chains worldwide. From China's slowing trade and dropping exports to South Korea, Vietnam, and Europe's decreased exports, we'll examine the ripple effects these changes are having on businesses across the globe. We'll share company news like DHL's relocation to Kansas City and Carvana's impressive $6,000 gross profit per unit. And don't miss our insights on the impact of a wildfire in Canada on factory production and how the war in Ukraine is affecting plans for net zero by 2030.
Tune in and get up to speed on the most pressing issues facing supply chains today!
