Black Friday Shopping and the Supply Chain Crisis
Patrick Penfield, professor of supply chain practice and director of Executive Education in the Whitman School, was quoted in multiple news outlets in stories about the global supply chain crisis. They include Vox, The San Diego Union-Tribune, Sinclair Broadcast Group, WRVO-FM (Oswego), News Channel 9, and WSKG-FM (Binghamton).
In an article for Vox, Penfield explained the supply chain crisis, saying, “What will happen is that a phone will be delayed because they’re waiting on their plastic supplier, and the plastic supplier is waiting on the ingredient. It just takes one supplier — and it could be the base ingredient supplier — to fully screw up your supply chain.”
