This articles talks to a less surprising trend, i.e the issues global supply chains faced during the pandemic. Less surprising given the number of news articles that touched on supply chain issues. The article highlights that most regular consumers did not know what the supply chain does until they started to notice regular consumer products like toilet paper not being available in supermarkets.

The article calls out that a lot of supply chain experts were caught blind sighted by the enormous supply shocks that hit almost every finished goods product globally , this coupled with some classical supply chain practises around holding just-in-time inventories meant some businesses truly felt the brunt of the pandemic due to supply chain issues.
