The Effect of Climate Change

Of course, with climate change on the horizon, the dismal weather conditions that have plagued shippers for decades may well become a thing of the past. As temperatures in the Arctic continue to rise, areas which were once icy and untraversable are now easily accessible for shipping, fishing, and cruising alike. And although this change in weather might increase profits in Arctic-adjacent countries for a decade or two, it will be interesting to track how dramatically Arctic exports — particularly seafood — are impacted by shifting global temperatures.

Regardless of the potential effects of climate change, having a dynamic, adaptable supply chain is important in every region — from Alaskan tundras to Midwestern highways.
