About the Industry


Logistics & Operations Industry Sector:

Council Members
Truck and shipping containers

Logistics and Operations encompasses logistics, distribution, transportation, and internet fulfillment operations. There is a strong existing infrastructure in Nevada for a wide range of distribution, logistics, and related operations, as well as for air cargo and passenger transportation, with significant cost and regulatory advantages compared to neighboring states.

This industry exists in both Northern and Southern Nevada, although there are some significant differences between the two regions in terms of available infrastructure and industry critical mass and momentum.

GWIB Logistics & Operations Sector Council Strategic Plan 2013

Northern Nevada’s strong distribution and transportation network is evident in the wide range of national-name logistics/distribution companies (65 trucking companies and national logistics companies) that have already set up operations in the region.

In Southern Nevada, a large share of growth and activities in warehousing, distribution, logistics, and freight transport is very much linked to the Tourism and Gaming industry (for example bringing in the food and other goods that are demanded by tourism and hospitality businesses). There are also a growing number of “export-oriented” distribution, warehousing, and logistics companies in Southern Nevada.

Nevada can be a western hub of transport and operations—an inland port— because of its locational and geographic advantage, and building a skilled and available workforce is a priority.

The mission of the GWIB Logistics & Operations Sector Council is to identify workforce needs and develop initiatives to educate its workforce in support of the economic development goals of the state.
