Top national experts in transportation, distribution and logistics will descend upon the Indiana Convention Center on Oct. 17 for the 2012 Indiana Logistics Summit.
The 10th annual conference will feature presentations by industry experts, extensive networking opportunities and booth displays.
Co-hosted by Purdue University, Conexus Indiana and Ports of Indiana, the summit brings together representatives from all modes of transportation, government, economic development and academia to discuss issues affecting the industry and how to grow business through logistics.
Indiana is known as the “Crossroads of America” and it ranks among the top 10 states in more than 40 logistics categories, including No. 1 in intersecting interstates. The state’s central location, business-friendly environment and extensive transportation infrastructure have made Indiana a leader in the world of logistics. As a result, more than a billion tons of freight travel through the state each year and Indiana has become one of the best places to grow businesses that rely on the movement of goods.
Attendees at the Indiana Logistics Summit will hear industry experts talk about major logistics issues and opportunities for future growth. Other topics will include industry updates from road, rail, water and air experts; status reports for major transportation projects around Indiana; best practice examples from industry leaders; current event issues from around the U.S.; and Indiana’s latest rankings in key logistics areas.
