The information you posted on your trucknews.com blog “What drives the success and fuels the fears of motor carriers?” refers to a “well-publicized study” that compared the average annual growth in stock value of companies considered leaders in how they managed their supply chains and those who were considered laggards in their supply chain practices. I missed that study and would like the name of it so I can read it for myself.
This blog and the following one on the complexity carriers face were VERY well written and informative. I’m looking forward to reading more of your articles.
Thank you for the kind words about the blog. The study I was referring to was conducted by Accenture and Stanford University. It tracked more than 600 major companies across 24 industries over a six-year period. It calculated financial performance for each company based on change in stock market value growth. Compound average annual growth in stock value of supply chain leaders was 10 to 30 percentage points higher than that of the laggards. Please continue checking the blog module on www.trucknews.com as I intend to continue highlighting research of importance to transportation. – Editor
