  • In 1940, the iron skillet was manufactured in Wisconsin from iron ore mined from Michigan and Minnesota. The skillet was shipped via rail to a distributor who eventually sold it to a retailer.
  • In 1980, the manufacturing locations were most likely still in the USA, but may have moved to the lower cost, non-union south. The skillet was shipped by truck (rather than rail) directly to the retailer.
  • In 2020, the skillet was manufactured in China using Australian or Brazilian iron ore. The skillet was shipped via ocean and truck to a fulfillment center or retailer in the USA.
  • In 2040, the skillet will most likely be manufactured in the USA or Mexico. The iron ore will come from a North America. The manufacturing process will be highly automated. The skillet will be transported via truck and the consumer will most likely buy via ecommerce or traditional retail.
  • The discussion illuminates advancements and trends including: sustainability, global economy, nearshoring, infrastructure, information technology, growth of logistics, security, capital investments, automation, productivity, labor, security, and the circular supply chain.
