A survey of supply chain managers underlined that in 2021, about two third of the respondents stated that Covid-19 remained a source of supply chain disruption, with human illness as the most common disruption (with 83% of respondents reporting). The loss of talent and skills remains a prevalent issue as employees retire or quit to work for another company. Transport network disruptions are mainly associated with the impacts of demand surges on supply chains that resulted from congested infrastructure such as port terminals. A third of the respondents reported a disruptive cyberattack or a data leak in the prior twelve months.
