You’re Invited to Our Next Dinner Program: Sustainability in Transportation

The Logistics Council (TLC) of Milwaukee invites you to a dinner program on Thursday November 13th where the Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Mark Gottlieb, P.E., will be our guest speaker.

Transportation networks in the United States and internationally have grown tremendously throughout history, improving the speed and efficiency with which goods are transported from producers to consumers.  Expanding from ancient trade routes and cobblestone roads, to modern ports, railroads and highways – an interconnected web designed to meet the expanding needs and number of the populace.  As these networks expand in size and complexity, the responsibility of sustainable development obliges both users and developers to design processes and transportation solutions which “meet our present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” [U.N. Brundtland Commission, 1987].

Program Overview:

This event will include the informative presentation, as well as a networking event for area college Supply Chain students to meet professionals in the Logistics industry.  Conducted jointly with the support of the Marquette University Center for Supply Chain Management and hosted in the Marquette Raynor Library, this event will bring together educational, professional and governmental experts in a unique atmosphere of learning.

Please join us for another quality educational program from The Logistics Council.

Speaker: Mark Gottlieb, P.E., Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation
