Key takeaways

“The Global Supply Chain Pressure Index (GSCPI) surged early in the pandemic when China imposed lockdown measures.”

“More recently, the [index] seems to suggest that global supply chain pressures, while still historically high, have peaked and might start to moderate somewhat going forward.”

“Researchers found “enormous growth” in shipping costs since the beginning of the recovery from the lows at the start of the pandemic. But that growth has started to slow in recent months.”
