The global economy hangs in a tenuous balance. U.S. growth has been slow, but steady, while the global economy has been mixed.  The survey data suggests that logistics planners are most concerned with meeting service levels, driven by capacity concerns, rising costs and the need to increase productivity.

 This year, we conducted a Transportation and Distribution Survey of decision makers to learn more about their concerns and expectation for 2013. Supply chain professionals from a variety of companies and industries were polled. Here’s what we learned:
  • A slow and uncertain economic recovery has begun to put pressure on transportation/distribution planners to plan for multiple scenarios.
  • Rising fuel and driver costs remain a key long-term concern.
  • Capacity is a significant concern. While trucking capacity has tightened, rail capacity is available.
  • Planners are equally concerned with meeting service levels, perhaps, caused  by rising costs and capacity constraints.
