WORCESTER — Not enough containers to store do-it-yourself ice cream. 

A bicycle store can’t make repairs because parts aren’t coming in. 

And this thirty day period, Polar Beverages, just one of Worcester’s largest companies, cut its manufacturing plan down to three times all through a a person-7 days stretch — from its normal 24/7 generation cycle — because it couldn’t get carbon dioxide and nitrogen to run its organization. 

“It’s a disaster,” explained Chris Crowley, executive vice president at Polar Drinks.  

Those are just some of the supply-chain disruptions in Worcester caused by the coronavirus pandemic that have some business owners — and customers — wondering how extensive this is going to last.  

President Joe Biden announced this month the port of Los Angeles will remain open about the clock so a massive backlog of products sitting on container ships will get unloaded, set on trucks and shipped out nationwide.
