RSM Supply Chain Index : What Is The Future Of The US Supply Chain Bottleneck? It seems this morning the RSM Supply Chain Index had a good reading. Moreover, the RSM Supply Chain Index during the last month of November stands at an impressive 4.18 standard deviations below neutral. Furthermore, this is a modest improvement from last month’s number. .Furthermore, demand-pull inflation-rising pricing pressures are manifesting as a result of a shortage of supply. A shortage of supply that has altered policy in the U.S. The Federal Reserve and global central banks.
This has caused supply chain disruptions that have not yet eased sufficiently to create the conditions for a decisive turn upward in our supply chain index. It is too early to categorically state that disruptions to the supply chain have bottomed out yet. This, despite a potentially constructive turn inside the index amidst what has turned into a multi-year crisis. Lastly, we might still have more remaining pain in the US supply chain bottleneck. Our Holiday season has certainly been affected by this supply chain as inflation coupled with supply chain issues has crippled the retail world.
