The COVID-19 pandemic and global health crisis that began in 2020 shed light on several supply-chain issues, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities. Ideally, during a crisis, the U.S. would be able to rise to the occasion, shifting gears quickly and efficiently to ensure that whatever resources are in short supply—whether it’s toilet paper, food, medicine, or something else—make their way into the hands of those in need. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the pandemic, this wasn’t the case. It became clear that, in general, supply chains in the U.S. weren’t quite as flexible and agile as they needed to be. And now, the White House is looking to create systemic change that could strengthen U.S. supply chains and prevent similar situations from happening again.
