US companies in Vietnam hit by supply chain problems

According to a survey conducted by members of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Vietnam, U.S. manufacturing companies operating in Vietnam suffer from supply chain problems due to the coronavirus epidemic.

“More than half of our manufacturing members have difficulty finding supplies / materials due to coronavirus outages,” said AmCham executive director Adam Sitkoff.

More than a third of members say that current supply chain disruptions are already seriously affecting their company’s global operations, the statement said, adding that the biggest challenges are the safety of alternative materials and goods, along with inventory management.

“Supply chain disruptions and travel restrictions are and will continue to affect many business sectors,” said Sitkoff.
