Managing the Now, Preparing for the Future

While some of the roadblocks they were facing have since eased – the global chip shortage being one of them (at least for some sectors) – a host of new challenges were waiting right around the corner.

The ongoing war in Ukraine, the spate of U.S. bank failures and a labor shortage that appears to be here to stay are also keeping many distributors up at night right now.
