November/December 2015

When it comes to getting your products to market you need to be ready with a solid plan. But is your plan the best one possible? To help answer that, this November-December 2015 issue covers it all — including challenges, rewards and location strategies. From our four state Spotlight articles and Short List and Sites & Programs columns to our Features, Insights and Industry Outlooks columns, this issue covers supply chain management and logistics from sea to shining sea.  Ready, set, go!

Want to find out more about connections between logistics and locations? This issue offers six separate articles that tip you off to locations that are really conducive to moving your products to market. The states of Georgia, Louisiana, Texas and Missouri all shine a light on the reasons, including the logistics features of their states, which make them attractive choices for business location. Equally attractive for business location are the seven U.S. states and counties that present their benefits in this issue’s exclusive Short List column, “Communities where Logic is Embedded in their Logistics Infrastructure,” plus the five port areas featured in our exclusive Sites & Programs article, “Ports Propel Communities’ Economic Development at Full Steam.”  

Are you interested in something more specific like warehousing or ports? This issue fulfills that need as well. Turn to the pages of our two Outlook columns; one from the Warehouse Education and Research Council and the other from the American Association of Port Authorities.

And as always, this issue keeps to the Trade & Industry Development hallmark of covering site selection from a vertical industry point of view, presenting the opportunity to learn even more in our Features and Insights article that span the industries of metalworking and fabrications, plastics and the supply chain industry.
