February 9, 2016
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) today announced that it is collaborating with global strategic management consulting firm A.T. Kearney as the new author and researcher to produce its Annual “State of Logistics Report®”. 
Penske Logistics will continue in its longstanding role as top supporter of the “State of Logistics Report®” as it has since 2009. Penske Logistics is also a Global Sponsor of CSCMP’s Annual Conference and supporter of the CSCMP’s Young Professionals Survey. 
A.T. Kearney has assembled an outstanding team with top-tier supply chain experience to produce the report. The addition of A.T. Kearney will enable CSCMP to improve the quantitative and qualitative value of the report for our membership and the supply chain community. 
Highlights will include:

  • A laser-focused narrative detailing the economic environment impacting logistics
  • Interviews with industry leaders, including shippers, carriers and regulators
  • An in-depth spotlight on relevant trends and expected changes in 2016 and beyond
  • A well-informed, global and strategic point of view on the state of the industry

The 27th Annual “State of Logistics Report®”, presented by Penske Logistics, will debut at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on June 21, 2016. The report has tracked and measured all costs associated with moving freight through the U.S. supply chain since 1988. This year’s report will present an overview of the economy during the past year, the logistics industry’s key trends, and the total U.S. logistics costs for 2015.
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with A.T. Kearney as the author of this important report,” said Rick Blasgen, president and chief executive officer of CSCMP. “Along with our supporter, Penske Logistics, we will be able to bring to our members the most insightful and meaningful trends and perspectives in the logistics arena.”
