ERIE, PA. (June 28, 2019) - As previously announced by Logistics Plus Inc., and as recognized by the Registrar at National Day Calendar, today, June 28th, is NATIONAL LOGISTICS DAY - a new annual day to recognize and appreciate the importance of the logistics industry in both our national and global economies.
In addition to National Day Calendar registration, U.S. Senator Patrick Toomey and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf both offered their unwavering support for NATIONAL LOGISTICS DAY. Earlier this month, Pennsylvania Representatives Robert Merski, Patrick Harkins, and Ryan Bizzarro co-sponsored a unanimously approved resolution within the PA House of Representatives to officially honor NATIONAL LOGISTICS DAY. Other states, including the State of Ohio, have offered similar support.
Logistics accounts for nearly 8% of everything we make and sell in the United States. That includes packaging, warehousing, shipping, and more. More than 50 million people are employed worldwide in the field of logistics! The third-party logistics (3PL) industry - those that help businesses efficiently manage logistics across their supply chains (from 3PLs to truckers to warehouse managers) - represents an $800 billion industry on its own.
