February 25, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Sandeep Duggal, CEO of Extron Inc and Chairman of the Last Mile Manufacturing and Onshoring Initiative, will participate in the America on the Move: Transportation and Infrastructure for the 21st Century national summit on February 26-27, 2014 at the Harvard Business School in Boston, MA.
Mr. Duggal will join industry leaders from across the country as they come together to discuss challenges and opportunities that focus on advancing U.S. competitiveness in a changing global business environment. As a summit participant, Mr. Duggal will join with CEO's of other companies, such as General Electric, Delta Airlines, CSX, GM, FedEx Freight, ZipCar, and others to discuss new models for transportation systems, digital networks, logistics, distribution, and customer-focused solutions for infrastructure development. Mr. Duggal stated "A key part of improving the competitiveness of U.S. industries is to rethink the way we do business all the way down the supply chain. That includes the transportation and infrastructure that your supply chain relies on, both domestically and abroad."
Mr. Duggal went on to state that his company, Extron, is finding success in helping its clients rethink supply chain assumptions that are now outdated. "At Extron," he said, "we can reengineer parts of a client's supply chain and improve their competitiveness by providing onshored manufacturing solutions that essentially replace the 'Last Mile' of their supply chain. These new supply chain elements, however, have to exist within today's transportation and infrastructure model, so forward thinking about the bigger picture, such as that which is being discussed at this Summit, is essential."
