SC Logistics is a collaborative effort to strengthen South Carolina’s economy, create jobs, attract investment, and become a global leader in transportation, distribution, and logistics. SC Logistics is aninitiative of the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness that is made possible, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration and with support from the South Carolina Department of Commerce
Our work focuses on five core objectives:
MANAGE, MARKET, AND CONNECT
THE LOGISTICS SECTOR
South Carolina is home to a robust network of airports, seaports, and major railways and highways. SC Logistics helps highlight those assets in order to position the state as a hub for the transportation of freight across the globe.
GROW THE LOGISTICS SECTOR
The logistics industry supports all businesses in South Carolina, from global manufacturing companies to locally owned small businesses. As a growing number of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) opt to settle in the state, SC Logistics helps provide the resources they need to thrive.
EXPAND THE TALENT PIPELINE
We help introduce South Carolina students to the logistics industry and help the industry attract and retain talent by strengthening recruitment, skills development, and opportunities for employees and employers.
PROMOTE A COMPETITIVE INFRASTRUCTURE AND BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT THROUGH RESEARCH
We provide our federal, state and local officials with the data and industry updates required to make informed decisions on how to best support the growth and success of the state’s logistics industry.
FOSTER COLLABORATION, KNOWLEDGE SHARING, INNOVATION, AND TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS IN THE INDUSTRY
We facilitate the growth of the technology sector by providing opportunities to build connections, share expertise, and advance new ideas within the logistics industry.
TECH TALK FALL 2019
SC Logistics’ signature event, Tech Talk brings together supply chain & logistics thought leaders, to discuss the cutting-edge technologies that are changing the logistics industry today and how these technologies will drive South Carolina into the future.
