Fiber to Fabric Solutions


In a world where the only constant seems to be change, businesses and consumers alike are seeking stability and reliability. Recent disruptions in the global supply chain, such as the unprecedented dry season affecting the Panama Canal, have sent ripples through international commerce. However, for clients of AKAS Tex and Wazoodle Fabrics, there’s a reassuring constant: our commitment to quality, sustainability, and domestic production ensures that we remain unaffected by these global challenges.

The Panama Canal Crisis: A Wake-Up Call for Global Supply Chains

According to a recent article on CNN, Panama is experiencing one of its driest seasons on record, leading to lower water levels in the Panama Canal (source). This has resulted in restrictions on vessel weights and daily traffic, affecting a critical international shipping artery. While the immediate impact on U.S. manufacturers, retailers, and consumers is minimal, the potential for broader disruption is growing. This situation serves as a stark reminder of the vulnerabilities inherent in global supply chains.
