SC Logistics to hold Warehousing/Distribution Industry Forum in Charleston

On Thursday, May 17 the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness’ SC Logistics initiative will hold a Warehousing/Distribution Industry Forum from 1:30 - 5:30 p.m. at 1142 Morrison Drive (ILA Building) in Charleston, SC. The forum will focus on industry and legislative updates and introduce attendees to innovative software and cutting-edge robotics that reinforce warehouse security.

This event is SC Logistics’ second quarterly industry forum and follows the release of a recent warehousing/distribution study commissioned by the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness. The study was conducted by the Boyd Company, Inc. and showed South Carolina as home to three out of the five top most competitive locations for distribution warehousing operations. Out of 20 U.S. destinations compared across the United States, Greenville/Spartanburg ranked third and Charleston ranked fifth. Dillon ranked number one.

With over 600 logistics companies operating in South Carolina, the logistics sector has positioned itself as one of the key industries in South Carolina. Events like May’s industry forum and research like the warehousing/distribution study continue to be a valuable resource for the industry.

In addition to providing actionable research and networking and education opportunities, SC Logistics focuses on innovation and technology within the logistics industry cluster and provides thought leadership on trends changing the logistics landscape.

Limited seating is available for the May 17 Warehousing/Distribution Industry Forum. To register for this event, please click here. For more information, please contact Suzanne Dickerson at sdickerson@sccompetes.org.
