Quad City Commissions Chabin Concepts and Austin Consulting for Logistics Industry Study Project


 
Quad City is a community of cities sharing the Mississippi River, from Davenport and Bettendorf, Iowa, to Moline, East Moline and Rock Island, Illinois. The group also includes many smaller communities in both Iowa and Illinois.

Quad City is facing a critical situation as a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure decision to relocate some of the operations of the Rock Island Arsenal. This decision is projected to affect 20 percent of current government jobs in the region. Large portions of the eliminated jobs are in logistics.
 
The study is part of an economic adjustment strategy that will be implemented by Quad City. The intent of the strategy is to transform and diversify the Quad City Regional Economy with focus on implementing job creation activities.
 
The project will involve:
  • A comprehensive inventory and analysis of composition of Quad City Region’s logistics firms 
  • An assessment and analysis of Rock Island Arsenal DFAS/TACOM human resource assets
  • An assessment and analysis of competitive strengths and weaknesses of the regional product relative to business growth and development 
  • Identification of niche opportunities that are a good match with regional strengths 

Outcomes of the project include
  • Corporate Location Assessment Report Card and Cost Model to document the region’s competitiveness for logistics businesses
  • Recommendations for target logistics industry sectors and research of relevant industry information and trends 
  • Research and development of Quad City’s Business Case for the Logistics Industry – data and marketing fact sheet
  • Development of a unique Business Case Website focused on the Logistics Industry
