Shipping Companies Expect the Global Crunch to Continue

The shipping crisis is getting worse.  Here's what that means for holiday shopping.

More than 18 months into the pandemic, the disruption to global supply chains is getting worse, spurring shortages of consumer products and making it more expensive for companies to ship goods where they're needed.

Shipping companies expect the global crunch to continue. Unresolved snags, and the emergence of new problems including the Delta variant, mean shoppers are likely to face higher prices and fewer choices this holiday season.
