Attached you will find the July edition of the monthly Logistics Market Snapshot.
As you may already know, we pull this material from over 300 different sources that we review and compile every month. The Snapshot is intended to be just that, an easily digested glimpse into some of the facts and figures that fuel our industry. However, many of the sources go into MUCH greater detail and are worth looking at if you are interested to learn more.
So this month, in addition to the sources listed in the pages of the Snapshot, I thought I would point out a few interesting reports and resources that caught our eye:
1) CNBC Released their 2012 Top States for Business Rankings. Transportation in Georgia takes #3 in the Nation, GA workforce ranked #1. Read the report and the see all the ranking categories here: http://www.cnbc.com/id/46415063
2) The USDA released a new Ocean Shipping Container Availability Report (OSCAR) provides a weekly snapshot of container availability for westbound transpacific trade lanes at different intermodal locations around the country. Get the weekly updated report here: www.ams.usda.gov/OSCAR
3) New Georgia Export Price Index… Tomorrow, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will release a new quarterly report highlighting export price indexes for industries that are important to the economy in the state of Georgia. The output will be released quarterly and represent the first time a release has focused on key exports for a specific state. Other states will follow in the future. http://www.bls.gov/mxp/
4) Finally, check out our brand new website which we launched earlier this week. It has a wide range of logistics tools and hundreds of reports like the ones mentioned above searchable in the Resource Library on www.GeorgiaLogistics.com.
