UC associate dean says supply chain issues likely to be resolved this year

Restaurants implement surcharges to deal with current problems, WCPO reports

Supply chain issues likely will be under control by the end of 2022, Chuck Sox, the associate dean of impact and partnerships for the University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business, told WCPO.

“I think by the end of 2022, things will be fairly normal… but I think a big component to answer that question is how quickly we get the pandemic under control,” Sox said.

For now, WCPO’s Mariel Carbone reported, restaurants such as Taste of Belgium have implemented temporary surcharges to cover increased costs and challenges in getting the right supplies.

“It only takes a few people or a few products or a few shipments to be off to really disrupt an entire supply chain,” Sox said.
