2022 Port Disruptions – A Report from Blume Global and Resilinc

COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, the Russia-Ukraine war, inflation and labor strikes—2022 proved to be quite a tumultuous year for the supply chain. As a result, ports were shut down, shipping costs increased, and backlogs become the norm. The delays at ports caused trickle down effects including production slowdowns at manufacturing facilities and constrained component part supply including silicon chips. It is no surprise to see that disruptive events at ports across the globe are up 40% year-over-year.

In this in-depth report, we worked closely with Resilinc to combine data and dive deep into the port disruptions in 2022 and how these disruptions have impacted shipments through three of the world’s largest ports:

  • Shanghai
  • Long Beach
  • Rotterdam
