The current newsletter features our complete review of 2013 global supply chain activity indices including an updated set of figures. The data points to a noticeable surge in supply chain and manufacturing activity both in the United States and Taiwan. This week, economists have raised concerns regarding the January contraction of China’s supply chain activity which comes during the traditional two month slowdown brought about by the celebration of the Lunar New Year holiday. The year has begun on a positive footing for the globe’s epicenter of manufacturing.

In addition to a synopsis of Q4-2013 supply chain developments, the newsletter features updates on transformation across the U.S. auto parts industry, adoption of supply chain vertical strategy frameworks and continued disruption of the supply chain and B2B focused industry analyst model.
