CSCMP ‘State of Logistics’ report missed the mark

CSCMP ‘State of Logistics’ report missed the mark

The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) 2022 State of Logistics Report, the 33rd version, was unveiled on June 21. Its title — and underlying theme — was that our nation’s supply chain was “out of sync.”

I found the title ironic because the report was very much out of sync with the traditionally high expectations for it. Perhaps “A Blinding Flash of the Obvious” would have been a better title. The headline — that logistics rose to 8 percent of GDP — totally ignored the implication that the US economy grew just over 5 percent.
