Semiconductors’ crisis: The great supply chain disruption
When the new lifestyle triggered by the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions boosted the demand for consumer goods, it burst a crisis for microchips and other semiconductors, that now requires seamless logistics plans to keep factories working – and products available in many industries.
