Food and beverage goods are transported to their final destinations by all modes of transportation, which includes air, sea, rail and ground. The pulse of food logistics (and the supply chain in general) can be found each year in the State of Logistics Report, presented by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and Penske Logistics. Author Rosalyn Wilson, one of the country's leading transportation consultants, reports in the 25th version that total U.S. logistics business costs in 2013 rose to $1.39 trillion, a 2.3 percent increase from the last report. Wilson and Penske senior leader Joe Carlier will discuss the report and its industry insights.
