• Supply Chain Logistics Council



    The Wilmington Chamber of Commerce recognizes that resilient, efficient, and secure supply chains are fundamental to our local and statewide commerce, economy, and the overall standard of living in our community. To address the critical challenges that threaten the stability of our supply chains—ranging from infrastructure investments, security threats and economic volatility to production issues and workforce shortages—the Wilmington Chamber is launching a Supply Chain and Logistics Council.

    This council aims to bring together leaders from the local industry to collaboratively tackle these issues and support industry growth. Our goal is to create a robust and collaborative network that enhances supply chain resilience, drives economic growth, and sustains the prosperity of Wilmington’s business community.

    The Supply Chain and Logistics Council will be led by volunteer co-chairs including Brian Clark from the North Carolina State Ports Authority, Michael Braddock from Frontier Scientific Solutions, Laurie King from NFI Industries (formerly MCO Transport), and Shawn Synnestvedt from Confluent Logistics.


    Our group plans to meet on August 7, October 2, and December 4, 2024, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Business discussions will take place from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, followed by an optional networking session from 5:00 to 6:00 pm. All meetings will be held at the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce.



    Our Supply Chain & Logistics Council aims to gather a diverse group of stakeholders, including port personnel, freight forwarders, customs brokers, shippers, third-party logistics providers (3PLs), carriers, chassis providers, and logistics team members from local manufacturers.

    These meetings will be open to both chamber members and non-members within the mentioned industries and roles. We kindly ask that members of the broader business community await an invitation to a future open meeting.
