Rising COVID Cases Increases Port Congestion

The world’s third busiest container port, China’s Ningbo-Zhoushan Port, partially shut down after a dock worker became infected with the delta variant of COVID-19. Operations are not expected to resume before the end of the month diverging dozens of cargo ships to other ports including Hong Kong and Shanghai.  

“We hear the backlog is getting bigger and the congestion is getting worse,” said Dawn Tiura, CEO of logistics industry association Sourcing Industry Group. “The disruption across ports is absolutely related. If you are buying goods that originate or move through China, you need to increase lead times or find another source of supply.”


Increasing Warehouse Employment

Warehouse employment has finally reached a new high after a several months-long dip. Companies are still scrambling to keep up with the demands driven by e-commerce as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But it’s great to know that this has been the 3rd consecutive month that employment in this sector has grown.


Home Improvement Spending Continues to Rise

Annual gains in homeowner improvement and maintenance spending are set to continue to rise in the second half of the year and remain high through mid-2022. 

Household remodeling is growing at a faster pace given the ongoing strength of home sales, house price appreciation, and new residential construction activity. What great news!
