Making Your Community Logistics Friendly

Christopher Lloyd, Advanced Planning and Site Selection, CH2M HILL Industrial and Advanced Technology

You may have an airport. You may have interstate access. You may have a rail spur. Perhaps you have all three. Maybe you have none of the above. Does having the infrastructure that mean you are guaranteed to attract logistics dependent companies? Does the absence of any of these mean that you are out of the running? This session explores, from the perspective of a site selector, what any community can do to make it more attractive to companies with logistics needs to help boost job creation and new investment opportunities/p>
