Supply chain and freight transportation disruptions have caused considerable challenges for U.S. chemical producers and their customers. The American Chemistry Council (ACC) conducted a survey of chemical manufacturers doing business in the U.S. in the third quarter of 2021 to better understand the issues chemical manufacturers were facing.
The survey identified significant challenges for the efficient movement of freight across transportation modes and showed how these problems negatively impacted the operations of ACC members. ACC surveyed members again in March 2022 as a follow-up to the previous survey. Sixty four chemical manufacturers participated in the survey. Findings from this survey are presented in this report.
