State of LogisticsTM surveys

Since the publication of the first annual State of LogisticsTM survey in 2004, this document has become one of the premier references for logistics in South Africa. The State of LogisticsTM is a CSIR trade mark, with trade mark applications filed.

The surveys are similar in format and thus allow for comparisons in trends. These trends, together with essential business information from various industry sectors, are vital for keeping track of the state of logistics in South Africa. The CSIR and its associates - Stellenbosch University and IMPERIAL Logistics - believe the surveys open the way for further discussions, interactions and dialogue on various logistics and supply chain management issues.
