On this episode I was joined by Sandy Lake who is the Director of the Georgia Center of Innovation for Logistics. We discussed what the center of innovation is in Georgia, why logistics is so big in the state and their Logistics Summit.
- The Georgia Center of Innovation is a state resource that helps businesses to grow and give them opportunities to learn what is happening in their particular industry. Sandy is in charge of the logistics arm of the Center of Innovation which focuses specifically on the logistics sector of Georgia. There are many logistics companies with hubs or headquarters here in Georgia due to the great resources they have. Sandy discusses how the road network is substantial, the proximity to major areas in the southeast and also the port they have with minimal backlog.
- Sandy’s group puts on an annual Logistics Summit which brings together business from the Georgia area to connect and discuss logistics topics. They have seen many great partnerships and relationships come out of this event. Overall, it is a way for Georgia’s resources that can help the logistics industry to be put on display for all to see. I encourage you to check it out here.
