The latest major disruption that has the entire supply chain world buzzing? The massive global shipping container shortage.
Over the past 15 months, we’ve been writing on the Argentus blog about the immense impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on global supply chains – particularly, as you might expect of a recruitment firm, from the perspective of talent and skills.
From supply disruptions, to rapidly changing consumer behaviour leading to increased difficulty for demand forecasting, to challenges companies face when protecting their front-line supply chain workers, the pandemic has raised a whole host of challenges — making supply chains one of the more disrupted aspects of the economy.
Over a year into the pandemic, supply chain professionals continue to perform heroics as the challenges continue to mount – both from new disruptions, and from knock-on effects from those that have come before.
Have you ever considered turning a Shipping Container into your dream home? It turns out that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to these metal boxes. Once thought of as an ordinary transport tool for various goods, Shipping Containers have now become the newest trend in modern living.
They can be converted into several different structural spaces, including a house, restaurants and even a local clothing shop. Whether recycled or brand spanking new, these Shipping Containers can literally be transformed into anything you desire. The dream space possibilities are endless.
The incredible proliferation of shipping containers is so vast that it is easy for current generations to take the existence of these steel boxes for granted. It’s the same for cell phones; anyone born in this millennium assumes that there have always been cell phones. Yet both were revolutionary in their invention and introduction.
Any Supply Chain professional is always looking for ways to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and increase speed. And it is with that mentality that the common, standardized shipping container was invented. Such a simple concept may seem obvious now but it was truly revolutionary when it was created.
