Today, it can be seen that it is not only the prices of raw materials that are the problem. Increasingly, local producers suffer from a lack of raw materials, as the existing supply channels are no longer available.
The discussed military conflict is not the only factor having a negative impact on supply logistics. It seemed we could slowly recognize COVID-19 as a factor that no longer has such an impact on the industrial supply chain. Until recently. In the last week, we have received disturbing information that new production complexes are stopping their operation due to new infection focuses.
