The winter storm in late February that shut down approximately 80% of US resin production has had a tremendous impact on resin pricing, but several other challenges, including ongoing pandemic-related labor issues, rising consumer demand for plastic products, and even the containers shortage, have roiled the spot resin markets. In this podcast, supply chain expert Ambrose Conroy, founder and CEO of business consultancy Seraph, shares insights on how we got here and what we can expect to see in the weeks and months ahead.
