“We are privileged to have Gov. Daniels and Dr. Sakkab share their thoughts on the importance of innovation and logistics to this region's global competitiveness,” Ports of Indiana CEO Rich Cooper, says. “This year's Summit has a tremendous group of speakers which should provide a thought-provoking dialog among industry experts on innovative supply chains, business opportunities, infrastructure needs, policy changes, workforce development, and the impacts of these topics on future freight mobility.”
