Created in 2009 as an event to bring together all aspects of the logistics industry for lunch, the Georgia Logistics Summit has grown over the last eight years from 400 attendees in its first year to nearly 1,500 in 2016. Each year, the Summit brings together nearly 50 speakers from prominent shippers in the industry, leaders in the state’s infrastructure and economic development community, and a keynote speaker from large corporations like Caterpillar, The Home Depot, and Walmart.
As a way to localize the Georgia Logistics Summit for the Coastal Georgia region, the Center of Innovation for Logistics partnered with HunterMaclean to create the Savannah Logistics Lunch in 2015. In its second year, the event greeted more than 350 attendees and featured speakers from Averitt Express, Descartes, C.H. Robinson, Georgia Tech, and the Georgia Ports Authority.
