CSCMP’s Annual State of Logistics Report® will be released via a webinar presentation open to CSCMP members on Tuesday, June 23, 2020.
The virtual presentation of the report will feature an overview of the key insights by Michael Zimmerman of Kearney, followed by a discussion with this year’s panelists, featured above. The 2020 report, written by Kearney and presented by Penske Logistics, highlights several wins for the industry in 2019, and shows that while supply chain has been battered, it is not broken.
For more than three decades, the report has offered a snapshot of the American economy through the lens of the logistics sector in the overall supply chain. It is a rigorous compilation of leading logistics intelligence from around the world, shines a spotlight on industry trends, and offers key insights on the ever-evolving industry supply chains.
The Annual State of Logistics Report® is a CSCMP member benefit (valued at $495) and will be available to CSCMP Members for download upon its release. The webinar presentation of the report is a members-only event.
Registration is for Members Only. Non-Members are welcome to attend, but must first join CSCMP before registering. Click here to join CSCMP now for only $325 to receive access to the webinar, the State of Logistics Report (upon its release), and more.

Long hours and industry disruptions might put added stress on workers, but almost nine out of 10 supply chain management professionals are still satisfied with their career choice, according to respondents to CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly’s Salary Survey.
Among other pluses, they appreciate the constant variety of their work and the opportunity to solve complex problems. Of the 488 supply chain pros who completed our questionnaire, 93% would recommend the profession to someone entering the job market.
Survey respondents also confirmed that certified professionals make more money, but we could have told you that!

The impact of the COVID19 pandemic on global supply chains will play out throughout the world well into the foreseeable future. In the U.S. the stark reality of relying on China as an integral manufacturer of many products that Americans gave little thought to prior to COVID-9, has resulted in a groundswell cry to reevaluate this relationship moving forward. From the C-suite of large, multinational corporations to closely held business owners the question of whether to move some manufacturing operations back to the United States is currently underway. While it is impossible to move a foreign manufacturing facility overnight, some operations can be peeled back to the U.S. in short order. This will likely result in the opportunity to export these products from the U.S., thus revisiting the vitality of the Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation (IC-DISC) may be in order, especially for closely held businesses.

Over the last couple of months, our world has undergone a seismic shift, to a place where working from home and face masks are the “new normal.” Gone are the days of eating in neighborhood restaurants and taking part in social gatherings. Yet, in the United States, the light is starting to emerge at the end of the tunnel. Companies are shifting their focus from playing balance sheet defense to plotting their path back to this new reality, and figuring out how not just to survive, but to emerge stronger and more resilient. Robotic process automation can play a key role in this roadmap to recovery.
The New Normal: Social Distancing
Governments and health authorities are stressing that social distancing measures are here to stay for the foreseeable future, until a vaccine is widely available. Companies have no choice but to address this new normal head on. For many businesses, social distancing will change the very nature of how their services will be delivered. Human interaction, once a desired commodity—with personalized service from the teller at the bank or a salesperson at the rregister—is now to be avoided.
In this new reality, customers care most about health and safety, and will flock toward businesses that lower their overall risk of exposure. This translates into more opportunities to apply robotics and automation, with multiple examples hitting the headlines.
