Meet with Peers & Tour a Major East Cost Seaport

East Coast ports have taken on a record number of containers, some of them diverted from the West Coast. Charleston benefited hugely from the rerouted traffic because of intermodal connections/infrastructure in place in North and South Carolina. The closeness to the mid-Atlantic/northeast end-markets for most Asia/Europe-originated cargoes also played a role.

Port issues are just one facet of supply chain issues impacting manufacturers. Join Manufacturers Alliance and industry leaders to discuss ways to make your supply chains more resilient. This special event will be held at the Port of Charleston and will include a tour of the facility. Hear directly from the Port leaders on how shippers have used the port to solve their logistics headaches. You'll learn all there is to know about using an East Coast port. After the formal program concludes, attendees can join a reception at a local hotel from 6-7:30 pm ET.

Who Should Attend

This event will appeal to manufacturing leaders with responsibility in overseeing supply chain, logistics, freight. Executives overseeing other areas will learn about challenges their companies face when dealing with West and East Coast traffic.
