NAVIGATING INDUSTRY TRENDS AND CHALLENGES
As an industry leader, we stay attuned to relevant stories and current events in the marine industry and supply chain management and what is currently impacting our clients’ businesses, their shipping costs, and supply chains:
• The ongoing war in Ukraine
• Factory closures to port congestion in the aftermath
of the COVID-19 pandemic
• Strikes at Canadian ports in British Columbia and
labor disputes at US ports
• Droughts: affecting shipping lanes such as the Suez Canal and
Europe’s inland waterways (last year, river levels went so low
that shipwrecks from WWII were exposed for the first time ever)

weather-related events such as raging wildfires, catastrophic
hurricanes, sudden flooding, etc.
The growing global economy adds further pressure, necessitating more efficient and effective supply chain management. By staying abreast of these trends and challenges, EIMC ensures that we are well-positioned to assist our customers in navigating the complexities of the global supply chain.
