Canada : Parsons' Wilson Presents State of Logistics Report.

Parsons announced that Senior Business Analyst Rosalyn Roz Wilson recently presented the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP s) 25th annual State of Logistics Report at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The Silver Anniversary report authored by Ms. Wilson as an independent consultant for CSCMP presents an overview of the economy during the past year, the logistics industry s key trends, and the total U.S. logistics costs for 2013.

We are proud to call Roz, a transportation and logistics industry expert, one of our own, said Todd Wager, Parsons Group President. Her report is a widely used analysis of the supply chain industry and is considered the premiere benchmark for U.S. logistics activity.

Ms. Wilson joined Parsons in April 2014 as part of the acquisition of Delcan. She has more than 30 years of industry experience, including expertise in research and writing, data collection and analysis, modeling and benchmarking, and management tasks such as policy formulation, business process redesign, infrastructure systems analysis, market analysis, and institutional strengthening. Ms. Wilson has worked on the State of Logistics ReportA since 1994, and in 2004 she assumed full responsibility for writing the report, which is published by the CSCMP and presented by Penske Logistics.

This year s State of Logistics Report reveals that total U.S. business logistics costs rose 2.3% from 2012. The report also reveals that logistics as a percent of U.S. gross domestic product dropped for the second year indicating that the logistics sector grew slower than the rest of the economy last year.
