The Logistics Manager’s Index in the US fell to 69.7 in April of 2022, the lowest since January of 2021, from a record high of 76.2 in March as main metrics shifted. Transportation Capacity increased for the first time in nearly two years (+11.2 to 56.9) while Transportation Prices declined (-15.8 to 73.9). Despite the slowdown in transportation, respondents still indicate growth in the sector. Also, Inventory Levels (-3.3 to 72.3) and Inventory Costs (-3.3 to 87.7) declined weighed by shutdowns throughout China. Meanwhile Warehousing Capacity remains in contraction (+4.8 to 40.8) while Warehousing Utilization eased (-4.1 to 70.9). Whether this slowdown will result in recessionary pressures or is simply the market moderating towards more sustainable levels, remains to be seen, as costs continue to grow and capacity remains tight. source: Logistics Managers' Index

LMI Logistics Index Hits Record High
The Logistics Manager’s Index in the US increased to a record high of 76.2 in March of 2022, as continued inventory congestion has driven inventory costs (91 vs 90.3), warehousing prices (90.5 vs 86.4) and overall aggregate logistics costs to all-time high levels. This is putting even more pressure on already-constrained capacity which hit an all-time low (36.1 vs 42.4). Transportation capacity (45.7 vs 44.4) was headed in that direction too from March 1st-March 15th but seems to have changed course slightly due to the rapidly increasing cost of fuel. Deadhead loads are likely to increase by $2,000 - $3,000 per load given the high costs of fuel, making it less attractive to drive empty trucks back to California, and could significantly impact the tender rejection rate. Adding to the global supply chain upheaval are the ongoing COVID-related shutdowns happening across China. Considering Q1, the average of the LMI index was 74.5, well above the all-time average of 65.2.

US Logistics Managers Index Rebounds to Start 2022
The Logistics Manager’s Index in the US increased to 71.9 in January of 2022 from an eleven-month low of 70.1 in December, amid unseasonably high rates of inventory accumulation although capacity remains constrained, and prices continue to grow quickly. Inventory grew the most since early 2018 as firms that had stocked up anticipating a continuation of the hot consumer economy may now be facing the opposite problem, with more inventory than needed to meet demand. Meanwhile, warehousing capacity read in at 47.1 marks 17 consecutive months of contraction and firms will continue to require more warehouse space, particularly in urban areas as soon as it becomes available. The lack of capacity continues to drive warehousing utilization (71) and warehousing prices (85.9) upwards. Looking forward, respondents do not predict much relied over the next 12 months.
