(SR300)Talking Freight - 2013 Supply Chain State of Logistics Report
8/21/2013 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), an international, supply chain-focused organization composed of over 8,500 members representing manufacturers, shippers, freight carriers, other freight logistics professionals, government agencies, and academia, publishes an annual report, the State of Logistics Report, which is considered one of the most important reports in the goods movement and freight logistics industry. The State of Logistics Report provides an overview of current goods movement and freight logistics trends, and also discusses the current freight volumes and economic health of the various transportation mode industries. Understanding the current "lay of the land" in the goods movement and freight logistics industry can help both public and private sector transportation agencies better understand current and possible future freight transportation planning needs. It can also provide insights into the business aspects of freight transportation, information typically not available to or examined by many public sector freight transportation professionals. This webinar will provide information on the current state of freight logistics in the United States, and provide insights from and identify needs for companies that are directly engaged in supply chain management.
