CLIFTON, NJ — Representatives from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) and ConnectOne Bank joined Clifton Mayor James Anzaldi to visit Shawnee Trucking Company in Clifton to raise awareness of resources available to small businesses throughout the state. The visit also highlighted the key role small businesses like Shawnee Trucking Company play in the growth of New Jersey’s transportation and logistics sector.
“The transportation and logistics sector is a major contributor to our economy, accounting for close to 200,000 private sector jobs and $23 billion into the economy,” NJEDA managing director of Business Development Paul Ceppi said. “Under Governor Phil Murphy’s leadership, we’re working with our partners in the industry to establish New Jersey as the nation’s pre-eminent transport technology hub. Small businesses up and down the supply chain play a pivotal role in making that happen.”
