ASW Conversations: Good news for the supply chain

Supply chain professionals have done good work to navigate challenges. As a result, issues are easing and prices are coming down according to a top expert.

Tom Cook, managing director of supply chain consultancy Blue Tiger International, speaks with ASW Conversations host Peter Bulmer in part one of a two-part conversation about supply chain strains, what’s driving them, and what that means for 2023 and beyond.

Cook, who has been a speaker at automotive aftermarket events, explains that experts have spent the last two years working at supply chain disruption and their efforts are paying off.

“So a lot of the betterments and the easing that has occurred is just a result of people who are in positions of supply chain management, learning how to navigate some of these challenges through this period of [the] pandemic,” he says. “But in fact, delays still exist, but they’re not as lengthy as they once were, probably peaked somewhere in the fall of 2021.”
