Plot Synopsis

OUT OF STOCK: SUPPLY CHAIN CRISIS is a three-part that explores the complexities of the global supply chain, explaining how factors like canal blockages and labor shortages caused by the pandemic have had a domino effect on getting products and food on the shelves and fuel into our cars. Everyone has grown accustomed to walking into stores filled with packed shelves, gasoline available at every station and our online purchases arriving on time. But the pandemic has impacted every step of the supply chain, from manufacturing, to shipping worldwide, to transporting within a country, and even to stocking shelves. This limited series explores the complex shipping system at its best and how it has broken down -- leaving goods stranded at docks and consumers panic shopping before holiday shortages ruin the upcoming season. Episodes include:

"Distribution Disaster" (Saturday, December 18, 2021 from 8-10pm ET/PT on Discovery): The manufacturing and food supply chains are a vital web linking producers, distributors and consumers across the planet, but as a result of the COVID pandemic, these critical shipping connections face catastrophic disruptions sparking a global crisis.
