SC Logistics Welcomes Premier Logistics Solutions into Industry Cluster Initiative

 

SC Logistics, an initiative of the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, is welcoming Premier Logistics Solutions as its newest partner.

As a partner, Premier Logistics Solutions joins SC Logistics in its mission to advance and market South Carolina’s Logistics industry cluster on the global stage.

The Charleston-based company is a full-service third-party logistics company that provides warehousing and transportation services to a diverse portfolio of clients from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

With projections for an 81 percent increase in the total tonnage transported through South Carolina’s railways, highways, airports and waterways, SC Logistics, with the support of private sector partners like Premier Logistics Solutions, will play an increasingly integral role in providing the state’s logistics companies the resources necessary to remain competitive on a state-wide and regional level.

“I am very glad to be welcoming Premier Logistics Solutions to the SC Logistics cluster,” says Suzanne Dickerson Director of Logistics Initiatives for the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness. “Having their presence at the table will bring additional heft to the work that we do and add another unique and valuable perspective as we continue to look ahead.”

Hal Burton, President and CEO of Premier Logistics Solutions notes that SC Logistics plays a unique role in supporting the state’s logistics economy saying, “Logistics is a cornerstone of every industry and it is critical in keeping the economy growing and moving.  We’re excited to be partnering with SC Logistics as they have an eye on everything that is happening in the industry in the state, across the region and even on a global level.”

Susie Shannon, President & CEO of the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness echoes that sentiment.  “Logistics touches nearly every corner of industry.  Under the leadership of Suzanne Dickerson and with partners like Premier Logistics Industry, we’re staying abreast of the ever-changing advancements in the industry and keeping the state competitive.”
