Reason Behind Product Shortages & Why to Holiday Shop Early
Economists Urge Consumers to Shop Early for Holiday Gifts, Product Shortages Due to High Volume of Orders
The Problem at Hand
We are living in a time of online shopping, and that means lots of packaging, shipping, and delivery. Thus, involving transportation devices like planes, trucks, and the most common; by ship. However, lately, there has been a significant jump in order volume due to COVID-19, causing a huge domino effect of problems.
Americans especially have been purchasing products at a record rate. This creates long delays at ports, product shortages, price jumps, and even backups/traffic jams in the Atlantic and Pacific as ships are forced to wait until the Great Supply Chain Disruption is solved. Therefore, consumers are in a panic as the delays increase and the holidays slowly approach.
Since the majority of imports that come to the U.S. from across the Pacific are unloaded in California, the ports in Long Beach and Los Angeles have greatly been affected. Together, they represent roughly 40% of the shipping containers entering the United States. The Savannah, Georgia port is also one of the largest ports in America and has been experiencing a huge backlog as well.
When Will This Resolve?
“Ordinary people and businesses are feeling the effects of these delays and bottlenecks,” a White House administration official says. “It makes it challenging to get products on the shelves and for goods to be delivered to the doorstep.”
CNBC reports that economists and business leaders are predicting that shipping backups, goods shortages, and price surges are likely to resolve in 2022.
