Auto Care WEBINAR: Supply Chain Disruptions and Shipping Challenges

May 11, 2021 to May 4, 2021

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

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
