The Orange County Economic Development Corporation has released its Industry Growth Strategy in partnership with VisionFirst Advisors and Foremost Quality Logistics. The strategy targets the recruitment and expansion of the logistics distribution and warehouse industries but also provides valuable resources to promote all sectors of Orange County.
Based on interviews, desktop analysis, and VisionFirst Advisors and Foremost Quality Logistics’ (FQL) knowledge of the Orange County region and the Orange County Economic Development Corporation (OCEDC), the industry growth strategy identifies activities, outlines goals, and provides suggested tactics for OCEDC to implement to recruit logistics, distribution, and warehousing businesses.
“Orange County has seen tremendous opportunity in recent years. This strategy will allow us to continue in a growth trajectory, capitalize on existing developments, and create opportunity for sustainable success,” said Jessica Hill, Executive Director of the OCEDC.
The leadership team gathered comprehensive data and trends and sought stakeholder input from a variety of voices, providing context to the analytics, to develop a meaningful and effective growth strategy that Orange County can successfully implement.
Recommended strategies include improving internal and external messaging, increasing business development outreach, aligning industry and educational partners, and developing key performance indicators. Each strategy will be implemented through an extensive outline of tactics specifically directed at capitalizing on the strengths of the community.
This plan lays out the groundwork for a collaborative approach to logistics, distribution, and warehousing by optimizing the resources of the region. The full report can be accessed at Industry Growth Strategy.
