Join Dr Yossi Sheffi for an informative talk about how logistics clusters drive growth and employment in multiple sectors
When: Tuesday December 4, 2012, 5:30 - 7:00PM
Where: MIT Media Lab, (bldg. E14-633) 6th Floor*
Who: Dr. Yossi Sheffi, Elisha Gray II Professor of Engineering Systems at MIT and Director of the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics.
In this book Dr Sheffi argues for the most important advantage offered by logistics clusters in today's recession-plagued economy: jobs, many of them open to low-skilled workers, that are concentrated locally and not "offshorable." These logistics clusters offer what is rare in today's economy: authentic success stories.
