A.T. Kearney has assembled a team of supply chain experts to produce the report, which will provide a strategic and global look at the state of the industry. In addition to calculating total U.S. logistics costs for 2015, the report will feature a narrative detailing the economic environment impacting logistics and an in-depth study of trends and expected changes in 2016. It will also include interviews with industry leaders, such as shippers, carriers, and regulators.
This will be the 27th year that the annual "State of Logistics Report" has quantified the size of the U.S. transportation market and the impact of logistics on the U.S. economy. The late logistics consultant Robert V. Delaney began the study in 1988 as a way to measure logistics efficiency following the deregulation of transportation in the United States. For many years, the report was researched and written by transportation consultant Rosalyn Wilson, who assisted Delaney and took over authorship after his death in 2004.
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.
