Arizona brewery forced to pay extra for shipping as supply chain crisis continues
Brewery director for PHX Beer Co., Adam Wojcik, joined ‘Fox & Friends’ to discuss the impacts of the supply chain shortages on the company.
An Arizona brewery has taken a pricey hit as the global supply chain crisis continues.
PHX Beer Co. brewery director Adam Wojcik shared with "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday that a brewing tank he ordered back in May 2021 from China finally arrived — but that he was forced to pay an extra $12,000 to get it.
Wojcik said that after standing by for a spot on a shipping boat that was "never guaranteed," his number was finally called.
Additional roadblocks due to supply chain issues pushed the delivery time to almost a year from the time of order.
But the company warned him about a potential 10% increase in cost, due to shipping bottlenecks in Long Beach, Calif.
