South Carolina’s logistics industry has new ways to connect and to market itself on the global stage. SC Logistics, an industry cluster supported by the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, has launched a new website and LinkedIn company page.
“The mission of SC Logistics is to connect and grow the logistics industry in South Carolina,” said Ann Marie Stieritz, president & CEO of the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness. “We believe that having these communication platforms are critical to maintaining the type of connectivity the industry needs to be competitive on the global stage.”
The website, located at sclogisticsindustry.com, provides the latest information on the logistics industry, in addition to a searchable map of logistics providers located inside the state. It was designed for logistics users and providers, economic developers, and companies considering a location in South Carolina.
“The logistics industry is important to all business in South Carolina,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. “From ensuring that goods and services are transported efficiently to employees traveling safely to and from work, the state’s logistics network is important for economic growth and industry success in South Carolina.”
The LinkedIn company page, located at linkedin.com/company/sc-logistics, features a daily feed of news & updates relevant to the logistics industry.
SC Logistics is led by the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness and its Director of Logistics Industry Initiatives Suzanne Dickerson. The initiative is conducted through a public-private partnership which consists of business leaders from the private sector, state agencies such as the SC Department of Commerce, the SC Department of Transportation and the SC Ports Authority, in addition to higher education institutions across the state. The development of the website and LinkedIn page was made possible in part by a grant from the Economic Development Administration, an agency within the United States Department of Commerce.
