Over the past 18 months, a group of supply chain researchers, in conjunction with the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), Supply Chain Quarterly, and DC Velocity have conducted a study measuring movements and rates of growth in the logistics industry. The Logistics Managers Index (LMI) is a tracking metric of logistics activity in the United States. Specifically, it is a bi-monthly measure of activity, as measured by a survey of supply chain professionals. In this article we present the methodology and the results of the first 18 months of the index.
