2018 China Logistics Insights Report Released With Theme Focusing on Green Supply Chain
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Supply Chain Management Research Center at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas teamed up with researchers in China to compare the macro-economic data of Chinese and American transportation volume and inventory costs. The research was conducted by the Walton College center, the Development & Research Center of the State Post Bureau of the Chinese Ministry of Transportation and the Cainiao Smart Logistics Network Limited, an Alibaba affiliate.
The 2018 China Logistics Insights Report reviews each country's detailed logistics costs as a percentage of gross domestic product. Findings compare the domestic Chinese economy with cost details in the U.S. State of Logistics Report, insights on the differences and logistics trends and an outlook for the future. This year's report focuses on green supply chain.
"China's green supply chain strategy has been evolving for several years starting in 2011 in a development phase. It has matured to include product design, procurement, production, sales, distribution, consumption and recycling aspects of supply chain management. Currently, green supply chain governance systems based on regulations, policies and standards are in place" says John Kent, clinical associate professor in the Department of Supply Chain Management.
