Supply Chain Tracker Shows Small Improvement

Transportation Department attributes continued delays to Russian sanctions and coronavirus.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Transportation released the latest data gathered by the Transportation Supply Chain Indicators Tracker. Overseen by the Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force, they have found previous actions to stimulate the movement of goods have improved, with imports in Los Angeles and Long Beach up 35% in January. However, the Department of Transportation cautioned that this could be a short-lived moment of normalcy.

The Transportation Department stated that the nation’s supply chain continues to be impacted by COVID outbreaks as well as the Russian invasion of Ukraine. They said, “USDOT continues to work with partner agencies and stakeholders from industry and labor to help speed up the movement of goods, and ultimately make goods more affordable for the American people.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Raimondo to have wisdom as the Commerce Department collaborates with the Transportation Department.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg to seek God’s direction as he seeks supply chain solutions.
  • For the safety of truckers, ship captains, and maritime pilots as they play their roles in the movement of cargo.
