Supply chain design and infrastructure planning during economic expansions is a commonly accepted best practice within the community of logistics professionals. An often overlooked, but equally critical set of supply chain issues arise during economic contractions.

So in an effort to understand what concerns decision makers are presently experiencing, Profit Point conducted an informal survey of more than 140 logistics professionals worldwide. The survey results indicate that more than 40% of all respondents have plans to expand, rather than contractor their supply chain networks within the next two years.

It is worth noting that the smallest companies surveyed – those with $100 million or less in annual revenue – are experiencing the largest contractions. Conversely, 57% of the surveyed medium-sized companies (annual revenues ranging from $100-500 million) are expanding, not contracting.
