Alabama Global Supply Chain & Logistics Summit set for Oct. 20

The state of Alabama will hold its fourth annual Global Supply Chain & Logistics Summit in Huntsville this month.

The North Alabama International Trade Association (NAITA) and the Port of Huntsville will host the event put on by the Export Alabama Alliance, which is aimed at teaching interested companies how to improve their efficiency and bottom line.

“With an ever-changing global economy, it is critical now more than ever to ensure that our supply chains remain strong,” Alabama Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield said. “Business owners need an in-depth look at core processes and common supply chain challenges in order to identify and focus on key enablers. The summit will give them the tools needed to achieve this.”

The summit will feature presentations concerning developments in the aerospace and automotive industries, in addition to cyber security and foreign trade zone (FTZ) sessions and a keynote address by United Launch Alliance. It will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at the Westin Huntsville. The cost is $75 per person, including breakfast, lunch and seminar materials.

To register and pay for the summit online, visit NAITA’s website. To register and pay by check, contact Beau Lore at the Alabama Department of Commerce, by email at or by phone at 334-242-0450.
