Last week's UC Riverside forum on the future of the Inland Empire's logistics industry included both champions and critics of the industry's impacts on the region.  In Part 2 of his reporting from the forum, KVCR's Matt Guilhem recounts the dueling points of view expressed by a familiar advocate of the logistics industry -- IE Economist John Husing -- and a prominent critic of the industry -- longtime IE environmental justice activist, Penny Newman.  While Husing touted the economic and social benefits of the growing logistics sector, Newman offered a scathing critique of labor and environmental impacts not exactly flattering to the industry.

Be sure to listen to Part 1 of our reporting from the IE logistics forum, focusing on the transportation and traffic challenges ahead as more and bigger logistics centers are planned for the region.
