CSCMP State of Logistics Report, session is on September 17

The report, created by A.T. Kearney and presented by Penske Logistics, made its debut earlier this year in Washington, D.C.

Amid a booming economy, United States Business Logistics Costs (USBLC) rose 11.4% to reach $1.64 trillion, or 8% of 2018's $20.5 trillion gross domestic product (GDP).

Across three decades, the State of Logistics Report has offered a snapshot of the U.S. economy through the lens of the supply chain. It is a rigorous compilation of leading logistics intelligence around the world; shines a spotlight on industry trends; and offers key points of view on the supply chain sector.

2020 3PL Study, September 16

The main topics in this year’s study are analytics in the shipper (companies that manufacture and distribute goods and services) and 3PL relationships; the growth of supply chain finance; and the continued greening of the supply chain.

Dating back to 1996, the 3PL Study has documented the transformation of the third-party logistics industry. Dr. C. John Langley, clinical professor, supply chain information systems and director of development, Center for Supply Chain Research at Smeal College of Business at The Pennsylvania State University, initiated this research to capture and measure this evolving industry. The publication is created and supported by Infosys Consulting, Penn State University and Penske Logistics.

This survey returns, seeking to answer these questions. The wide variety of opportunities available throughout the supply chain stand out as a key reason young professionals continue to study and enter the supply chain management profession.
