The supply chain is slowly returning to balance
The head of supply chain for a leading crop protection manufacturer encourages growers to be proactive as the system returns to balance.
BASF’s Cynthia Stanton says that means being realistic about input needs for 2023.
“But then also partnering with both your customers and your suppliers, because it’s going to be more important for that communication and thinking about their needs. And then make sure they’re partners and communicate that and make sure they’re aligned.”
She tells Brownfield that the supply chain has been slow to recover from a cascade of disruptions.
“Infrastructure, for example, they don’t come online and are fixed overnight. Capacity is being added, there is production capacity (and) global carriers are adding transportation capacity. But again, that’s not something that happens right away.”
Stanton says there is no quick fix to the global truck driver shortage and there are no other options to turn to.
She suggests that openness and transparency are essential as the supply chain recovers.
