Commission for Logistics and Supply Chain Collaboration

  • The purpose of the Commission for Logistics and Supply Chain Collaboration is to advise state agencies on initiatives to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of supply chain management for businesses. Achieving the goal will improve competitiveness, stimulate economic growth and create job opportunities. Further, the commission aims to create avenues of communication with the Province of Ontario, Canadian federal governmental agencies along with U.S. state, regional, and local governments. In addition, the commission will identify industries that can benefit from supply chain coordination, and offer guidance on how Michigan can maintain a competitive advantage in economic development, trade and commerce, and transportation. The 10-member commission represents private business, transportation, border operators, local economic development agencies and higher education.

    The Commission for Logistics and Supply Chain Collaboration (LSC) was created by PA 76 of 2013, signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder in June of 2013. The commission is housed in the Michigan Strategic Fund and replaces the former Michigan Commission on Supply Chain Management and Development. Members’ terms expire at the pleasure of the Governor.
