Impact of inflation on logistics remains problematic and requires planning and patience

The March inflation figure issued yesterday in the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Consumer Price Index (CPI) showed yet another new high, rising 8.5% annually, and marking its biggest percentage gain going back to 1981. If this trend had not already been occurring then, yes, it would be surprising or cause some sort of head-fake, but that is not the case, as it is something we have been seeing, and dealing with for a while now. What’s more, the March tally topped February’s 7.9% CPI reading, when excluding food and energy prices. While gains, in most instances, are generally viewed as a good thing, it clearly does not apply in this case.
