Join the Auto Care Association and Steve Hughes, president and CEO, HCS International, for the first webinar in this two-part series discussing supply chain disruptions and shipping challenges. The pandemic continues to have an effect on the global economy, international trade and slowing the movement of goods worldwide.
A surge in shipping volume and COVID-19-related challenges have overwhelmed capacity, stretching supply chains and causing severe congestion at the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
This webinar will discuss:
- COVID-19 impact on supply chains and ocean shipping
- Issues at the origin ports: Asia to US import surge and container shortage
- Overwhelmed capacity at destination ports: terminal bottlenecks and labor shortage
- Container freight rates and effect on margin/EBITDA
