We are becoming a true public-private partnership
East Bay Transportation & Logistics Partnership is becoming a true public-private partnership, with shared investment, governance, and action.
The Partnership will be an official task force of East Bay Leadership Council and Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, two East Bay business leagues dedicated to advocacy for business.
This change will allow the Partnership to act on its mission: to promote policies and investments to develop the East Bay as a globally-competitive distribution hub.
Dreisbach Enterprises and Surplus Service have become founding business investors. Oakland Workforce Development Board has become a founding grant investor.
We are very excited by this change, by the participation of our partners, and by what we can accomplish through public-private leadership for our region.
For more information, investment opportunities, or to request a copy of the Partnership business plan, please contact DSN and Director CITD PJ Shelton @Petural Shelton.
