Representatives from the State of Michigan and the City of Romulus made remarks at the event, congratulating INCODEL on its expansion and continued commitment to Michigan. State officials have emphasized the importance of growing Michigan’s capabilities to become a recognized North American center for supply chain and logistics.
“Competitive advantages moving forward will be transportation, distribution and logistics, which INCODEL really represents the heart of,” said Doug Smith, senior advisor, MEDC, during his remarks at the event.
INCODEL’s Supply Chain Management Center is near the northeast corner of Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. With 260,000 sq.ft.2 of space, INCODEL’s Supply Chain Management Center will comprise diversified supply chain activities including logistics; distribution; bonded warehousing; ocean shipping coordination; trucking and container yard storage; manufacturing operations including assembly and sub-assembly, packing, repacking, inspection and sorting; and potentially coating and machining; as well as R&D.
“Recognizing that Michigan’s location sits within 500 miles of major businesses, we want to be the leader of transportation in North America. One of our major initiatives is to make sure we take advantage of our location with the logistics companies that have grown out of the auto industry. Looking at that, we can truly become the distribution and transportation hub of North America.
