A delegation of Israeli logistics companies, led by the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce, visited Georgia last month to make important business connections. Participating in the delegation were The Israel Ports Development & Assets Company, Fourtec – Fourier Technologies, ZIM Integrated Shipping, Starcom Systems, and Top Image Systems.
The group visited first in Savannah where they toured the Georgia Ports Authority and Gulfstream Aerospace, and had business meetings facilitated by the Savannah Economic Development Authority and Savannah World Trade Center. In Atlanta, the activities centered around the Georgia Logistics Summit, a breakfast for government officials hosted by the Consulate General, meeting with UPS executives, and tour of the international cargo facilities at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The series of activities was capped by an AICC-organized reception hosted by Grant Thornton. Additional sponsors were Lee Hardeman Customs Brokers and A2B Fulfillment.
The delegation was a collaborative effort of the Israel Economic Mission to the South, Consulate General of Israel to the Southeast, American-Israel Chamber of Commerce with support of the Georgia Department of Economic Development and the City of Savannah. Members of the Israeli delegation shared their thanks and praise for the extraordinary efforts undertaken by the co-sponsoring organizations:
“Without a doubt, the effort and energy you expended planning and running the activities of the Georgia Logistics delegation made the visit the great success it was.”
