The careful planning of every detail related to the logistics and distribution of products from manufacturers to retail stores is what allows GMA member companies to ensure that consumers have convenient access to their products at all times.
The GMA Logistics and Distribution Committee works to identify the latest trends and emerging logistics issues for the industry. The Committee administers an industry-wide survey every three years to collect logistics data and allow companies to assess their standings on supply chain issues. Read the findings of the latest survey, the 2010 Survey of Collaborative Supply Chain Effectiveness Report.
For its members, GMA also holds numerous small, focused educational gatherings each year to discuss logistics issues and their potential impact on industry affairs.
