Strategic Indiana Logistics Partnerships
Conexus Indiana is an initiative working to capitalize on emerging opportunities in advanced manufacturing and logistics, aligning resources and expertise to make Indiana a leader in these exciting industries. Conexus places a focus on workforce development, exploring new market opportunities and building research and supplier networks to help Indiana manufacturing and logistics firms succeed.
Conexus Indiana created a new forum-the Indiana Logistics Council-for executives in the industry to explore short- and long-term issues, opportunities and obstacles to growth in their businesses, and to develop strategies to ensure Indiana remains a logistics leader. MD Logistics is proud to be strategic partners with the Indiana Logistics Council.
The Ports of Indiana is a quasi-governmental organization that operates a statewide system of ports, foreign trade zones and economic development programs under the authority of the Indiana Port Commission, a seven-member bipartisan board appointed by the governor.
Indiana is known as the “Crossroads of America” and it ranks among the top 10 states in more than 40 logistics categories, including No. 1 in intersecting interstates. The state’s central location, business-friendly environment and extensive transportation infrastructure have made this state a leader in the world of logistics. As a result, more than a billion tons of freight travel through the state each year and Indiana has become one of the best places to grow businesses that rely on the movement of goods.
MD Logistics is a sponsor of the Indiana Logistics Summit, co-hosted by Purdue University, Conexus Indiana and Ports of Indiana. The summit brings together representatives from all modes of transportation, government, economic development and academia to discuss issues affecting the industry and how to grow business through logistics.
