The world is facing a significant shipping crisis as a result of the pandemic’s disruption of global supply chains. As a result, many industries are facing shortages across their respective sectors. But, does this affect the packaging industry?

We’ve created this blog post to help you understand the full scope of the situation.

What Exactly is Causing the Shipping Crisis?

The pressures brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have not eased. With the delta variant emerging, it’s created a newfound obstacle for companies.

A shipping hub south of Shanghai, China has been shut down since August 11th after a dock worker tested positive for the virus. Many major shipping lines have followed suit and are warning customers of major delays.

Additionally, the cost for shipping has grown exponentially due to port congestion, low labor, and high demand.
