Israel was well represented at the 4th Georgia Logistics Summit last week in Atlanta. Participating Israeli companies included Tefen-based StePac, developer of a comprehensive program for monitoring produce freshness and quality as it travels through all links in the cold supply chain; Migdal Ha’Emek-based Haama Ltd, manufacturer of an environmentally friendly insulation material; and Kibbutz Revivim-based Raviv ACS Ltd, a developer and assembly supplier for the automotive industry. The event, organized by the Georgia Department of Economic Development, attracted 1,600 people with over 50 exhibitors, and was staged in conjunction with the MODEX conference, one of the largest for this industry.
The Israeli delegation’s participation was organized as a joint effort of the Israel Economic Mission to the South, The Israel Consulate to the Southeast, and the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce, and included a sponsored “Israel booth” that was a focal point of meetings. The project was inspired by a visit to Atlanta over two years ago by Israel’s Minister of Industry, Trade & Labor who recognized the importance of the Logistics industry to Georgia and the role Israeli companies and their technologies could play in its development.
“No doubt this event provided me a huge capability to start to push our Xsense product in US,” said Udi Aviran, StePac’s Director of Business Development.
