At Greenfield, we understand that your journey in the supply chain is not just about procurement; it’s a collaborative endeavor where we strategize, innovate, and navigate challenges together.

Empowering Your Success Through Knowledge and Solutions
In the complex tapestry of today’s supply landscape, information holds immense power. We are unwavering in our commitment to arming you with the latest industry knowledge and insights, because when you are well-informed, you can make confident decisions, foresee market shifts, and remain at the forefront of industry trends.
Before delving into our role in supporting your supply chain needs, let’s take a high-level look at the current supply chain landscape:
The global supply chain landscape remains balanced in terms of domestic supply and demand, but caution prevails as customers exercise prudence to avoid overstocking, learning from past demand miscalculations. Rising fuel and energy costs, notably the consistent upward trend in diesel prices, introduce added complexity.
Carriers in the trucking market hold optimism for a robust recovery by 2024. Signs of seasonal activity and merchandise restocking are apparent; however, customers proceed cautiously, mindful of potential uncertainties. Smaller carriers grapple with financial challenges amid rising rates and inflation pressures. While contract rate renewals for the coming year are uncertain, significant declines are not expected.
On the global economic front, the US economy maintains its robustness, marked by strong GDP growth. However, a tight job market is expected to persist until 2024. In contrast, the Eurozone faces challenges, with Germany officially in a recession. China’s economic rebound falls short of expectations, particularly in sectors like industrial production. Japan’s economic recovery proceeds steadily, while Latin America anticipates subdued growth.
In terms of inflation, a notable surge in US CPI is primarily attributed to supply-demand imbalances. Core services CPI remains elevated, and producer prices (PPI) see a substantial uptick, especially for goods. Indicators within the PPI pipeline suggest growing demand.
