The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been a disease that’s been threatening our well-being ever since 2020. A year later, in 2021, we still have yet to go back to how our lives used to be. From changes of dining, travel, and events people are stuck wondering: will it ever go back to normal? Many have been pondering this question over the past 2 years. In this article I will provide my findings from research to articulate an inference on whether or not the supply chain will revert to standard we had before COVID-19.
In more recent news, it seems like the supply chain is getting even worse. Cargo Ships are now backlogged at the California coast due to a shortage of energy, labor, and transport. Simply put, there’s not enough workers to meet the constant surge of demand. Container ships are having to deal with a four-week delay before being allowed to dock and unload goods. The world’s largest shipper, A.P. Moller-Maersk warned that bottlenecks “might be longer than expected”. Shippers such as UPS and DHL have also warned that supply chain problems could leave a “permanent scar”. It seems that if there is a future in which things go back to being like what they used to, we cannot begin to predict when that will be. We have a long road to recovery ahead of us.
