Keeping Things Close

I hope that the supply issues will encourage companies to try and source parts a little closer to home. With so much of what we use being shipped for many thousands of miles, this is always going to be problems if there is a blockage like Covid or the Sueze Canal issue.

If your supplier is only a few hundred miles away it is much easier to get items that if they are on the other side of the wolrd and delivery should also be a lot quicker.
