An estimated $223 million in cargo was stolen in the United States and Canada in 2022, according to a recent report from CargoNet. The 1,778 supply chain events recorded in 2022 show an increase of 15% from 2021, and these disruptions had an effect on inflation over the year as shortages drove prices higher.
