2. Keynote Speaker- Craig Menear

Not only is Craig Menear the President & CEO of the world’s largest home improvement store, The Home Depot, but he and his team also successfully executed one of the most dramatic supply chain transformations in retail history. Hear him speak while enjoying a formal lunch in the grand ballroom. 


3. Abundant Business Opportunities

Nearly 2,000 logistics professionals from around the world will be in one place at one time for two days. And there will be plenty of time for talking and networking. Every year, profitable collaborations and partnerships are established at the Summit. 

4. Three Sessions on High Growth Areas: E-Commerce, Intermodal & Perishables

The Summit never fails to deliver when it comes to its opportunity sessions. Get unique insight on areas of high-growth – e-commerce, intermodal and perishables – and hear from big players like Target, Delta Cargo, Chick-fil-A, The Kroger Co. and Armada.


5. International Logistics panel

One of the standout panels this year will focus on the international markets of Mexico, Germany & Vietnam. Learn what businesses are doing abroad and leave with a new and broadened global perspective on logistics.



The Summit is also the introduction of Jannine Miller, the new head of the Center of Innovation for Logistics. Jannine fills the shoes of Page Siplon, the guy who started the Summit, and will without a doubt bring her own flair to the show. As a “Top 40 Under 40” (Georgia Trend, 2011) she is someone you need to know, especially if you are a business in Georgia.
