Outlook on the Logistics & Supply Chain Industry 2012
The World Economic Forum is “an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world”. That’s ambitious. The Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Logistics & Supply Chains, which meets virtually and at the annual Summit on the Global Agenda in the United Arab Emirates, has just published its second annual report. The report, Outlook on the Logistics & Supply Chain Industry 2012, contains a series of articles on some of the key issues facing the logistics & supply chain industry, e.g., the role of logistics in the facilitation of international trade, the expansion of the Panama Canal, logistics clusters, the container shipping industry, sustainability, skills shortages, and supply chain risk. The Global Agenda Council on Logistics & Supply Chains is currently chaired by Alan C. McKinnon, Kühne Logistics University, Germany.
