Conexus Indiana’s North Central Regional Logistics Council has released a logistics plan focusing on long-term infrastructure and talent development. The organization says it involves public projects, policy and educational initiatives designed to keep the region "at the forefront of the global supply chain."
The council, which was created by Indiana’s logistics and advanced manufacturing initiative in 2013, represents Cass, Elkhart, Kosciusko, Fulton, Miami, Marshall and St. Joseph counties.
The report identifies 27 road, rail, air and water infrastructure projects designed to decrease transportation traffic and increase freight and connectivity options. St. Joseph County Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer Jeff Rea says the effort will help the area target and increase funding.
The strategy also calls on state and local governments to avoid putting regulatory barriers on the movement of goods and resources through the region, and provide adequate funding for infrastructure projects.
