Governor Snyder Launches Statewide Logistics Strategy

Freighter CC 2Governor Rick Snyder has issued the long-awaited Logistics and Supply Chain (LSC) Strategic Plan for Michigan, capping a 10-month effort to direct the development of this vital sector under a single, unified plan of action. The strategy outlines five core objectives to develop Michigan’s LSC assets, a sector which analysts generally recognize as a driver of global competitiveness.  The five objectives are:

 

  1. Enable logistics and supply chain solutions to create more and better jobs;
  2. Collaborate with industry and regional partners to identify and prioritize initiatives to improve regional competitiveness in Michigan and the Great Lakes MEGA region;
  3. Develop strategic marketing programs and campaigns that promote Michigan’s supply chain capabilities and leverage its location and natural resources;
  4. Prioritize infrastructure and policy initiatives that will increase our competitive advantage, reduce cost, save time, and support value-added supply chain activity; and
  5. Support the growth of Michigan’s innovative industry base with world-class supply chain infrastructure and talent.

Each objective is supported by specific action items with implementation timelines to ensure results-based outcomes. You can access, download and read the full strategy here. The Detroit Regional Chamber’s Translinked intiative played a leading role in the creation of this strategy, which is crucial to Translinked’s mission to develop the Southeast Michigan, Northwest Ohio and Southwest Ontario region into a world-class and globally recognized transportation and logistics hub.
