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.
