Understanding the recent history and future of diesel for
predictive insight to supply chain costs.
Separate from a discussion of crude oil, refined petroleum has been the currency, powering the residential and commercial engine. From the January 6, 1930 Indianapolis to New York diesel automobile trip, providing validity of diesel as a power solution, diesel has expanded to motorize trucks and trains, which are at the base of the US freight economy.
The recent cost impact on supply chain from diesel, and vice versa, has fostered deep discussions of mitigation strategies, e.g., network redesigns, modal shift, inventory optimization, accelerated technology adoption. The volatility present in the price of diesel, in many instances, being narrowly defined by the Russian-Ukraine War.
