Georgia Centers of Innovation Logistics

Georgia companies rely on the state’s logistics infrastructure and services to handle and haul more than $900 billion of cargo each year. This is because Georgia has unparalleled options for cost-effective intermodal transportation – ocean, truck, rail, and air – as well as reliable connections to suppliers and customers, and the technology and workforce that make efficient logistics possible. The Center of Innovation for Logistics helps companies take advantage of the state’s world-class logistics industry, so that they can improve supply chain efficiencies, support growth, and increase global competitiveness. The Center connects companies to the technical industry expertise, collaborative research, and partnerships that cargo-owning companies need. The Center understands all segments of the logistics industry, and provides a truly impactful forum for companies to network, address logistics challenges, and share knowledge.

Savannah Logistics Lunch Returns

On July 21st, 2016 – the logistics world in Georgia will again descend on Savannah. The second annual Savannah Logistics Lunch will be held at Armstrong State University and will feature a who’s who of Savannah logistics luminaries. Hosted jointly by the Center of Innovation for Logistics and HunterMaclean, the second iteration of the Savannah Logistics Lunch will focus on the issues of technology and transportation as they relate specifically to the logistics industry.

Over a catered meal, Logistics Lunch attendees will be treated to an enlightening program by some of the State’s top logistics minds. After remarks from Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr and Center of Innovation for Logistics Director Jannine Miller, those seated in the Armstrong Center at Armstrong State University will be treated to a discussion between representatives from CH Robinson, Georgia Tech, Averitt Express, the Georgia Ports Authority, Descartes, and HunterMaclean.

Innovation Is Key

Technology is changing the way logistics is approached in 2016. One needs to look no further than the shakeup caused by startups such as Roadie and Flexe to see that in the coming years, logistics providers will need to court innovation in order to remain successful. The 2016 Savannah Logistics lunch will continue a discussion begun at the 8th Annual Georgia Logistics Summit on the increasingly symbiotic relationship between logistics and technology (to see that discussion, click here). Attendees will hear well-rounded input on the issue from both the private and public sector, as well as the Georgia university system.
