[Video] How Do Global Supply Chain Disruptions Impact International Shipping?

In a global society like ours, where supply chains, economies and business activities are intimately connected between nations, world events indiscriminately affect everyone.

This rule applies, perhaps most impactfully, to international freight movement which can quickly be disrupted in the wake of major events.

And, when things out of our control like inter-country conflicts, global pandemics, international labor shortages and natural disasters occur, it's important that you understand what to reasonably expect for your cargo and from your provider(s).

In this video, Carl will outline how international events impact freight movement on a global scale and give you some insights into what you can anticipate when they, inevitably, do.
