REGIONAL LOGISTICS COUNCILS DRIVING LOCAL
LOGISTICS NEEDS

CILC, at the request of the Indiana Department of Transportation, Indiana Economic Development Corporation and the Ports of Indiana, created six regional logistics councils throughout Indiana to identify state, regional and local logistics need in each area of the state. These regions include Northwest, North Central, Northeast, Central, Southwest and Southeast Indiana.

CILC has developed partnerships with key regional groups in each area to carry out this important task. The partners include:

  • Northwest Indiana Forum in Northwest Indiana;
  • Corporate Partnership for Economic Growth, local chambers of commerce and local economic development groups in North Central Indiana;
  • Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership and the Regional Chamber of Northeast Indiana in Northeast Indiana;
  • Central Indiana Corporate Partnership in Central Indiana;
  • Evansville Regional Business Committee, the Southwest Indiana Chamber, and the Economic Development Coalition of Southwest Indiana in Southwest Indiana; and
  • One Southern Indiana, local chambers of commerce and local economic development groups in Southeast Indiana.

The regional councils are made up of high level logistics executives in air, rail, truck, water, infrastructure, manufacturing, and warehouse/distribution. The goals of these regional councils are to identify the regional and local logistics needs for infrastructure, public awareness, public policy and workforce development in each area of the state, publish and publicize these plans and implement the tactics identified in each plan. It is the intent to have the content development by the end of 2014 and published in 2015 (or earlier if possible).
