Report: Maryland’s manufacturing, logistics sectors score poorly

July 31st, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Maryland’s manufacturing and logistics sectors score poorly in annual report from Ball State University Maryland improved from "C" to "C+" in its liability gap and from "F" to "D" in its global position. The state kept the grades of "B" in productivity and innovation, "C" in human capital and benefits costs, "C-" in diversification, and "D" in manufacturing and logistics. Maryland declined from "C-" to "D" in its tax climate category.

 

The 2019 Manufacturing Scorecard from Ball State’s Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) analyzes how each state ranks among its peers in several areas of the economy that underlie the success of manufacturing and logistics.

 

These specific measures include: manufacturing and logistics industry health, human capital, cost of worker benefits, diversification of the industries, state-level productivity and innovation, expected fiscal liability, tax climate, and global reach.
