The survey will look into the effect of oil prices on upstream supply requirements and downstream logistics needs.
 
Aimed at practitioners and not consultants, the survey asks for opinions on price volatility, the impact this is happening on companies and public policy options. It asks what companies should do to dampen the effect in their supply chain. Would a more predictable oil price save money and how could that be achieved?
 
Participants will receive a detailed report that summarizes the findings, highlights best practices, and makes policy recommendations. In addition, the first 25 respondents will be offered a free copy of David Jacoby's newest book on supply chain management: 'The Economist Guide to Supply Chain Management'. 
 
To receive a free report and a copy of the book, please leave your email address at the end of the survey which should only take about 10 minutes. Applications will no longer be accepted after August 7th.
