In virtually every sector it's the same story:

-You have operations that are intended to turn X trucks/containers/cases per week and have sold their services to operate at 90%+ efficiency -Labor issues are causing operations to reduce by significant amounts -Customers are demanding the same number of trucks/containers/cases to flow in and out. -Operator can't keep up, resulting in overflowing warehouse, long inbound delays, and long outbound delays.

Biggest single issue is labor. Can't get warehouse personnel. Can't get people to work the lines. Can get boxes because your box supplier can't get people. Can't get packaging because your packaging supplier can't get people. Can't get your own people to pack product. Can't get parts to fix your line, or your fork lifts, or your trucks, because your parts supplier can't get people. Can't get drivers to move your product. Can't get an appointment to deliver your product.

It's a real fucking nightmare.
