Looking for a good book to take to the beach this summer? We can't help you there. But we can tell you where to find good deals on transportation handbooks you'll want to keep on your desk for year-round reference.
The Transportation & Logistics Council (TLC), whose mission is to educate shippers about laws affecting transportation and logistics, is offering discounts on the organization's most popular publications through September. Subjects include freight claims, insurance, tariffs, shipping and receiving procedures, and contracts. The books (some of which are available on searchable CDs) are known for presenting complex regulatory and legal issues "in plain English." This unique approach makes them suitable as both teaching tools for newcomers to transportation and logistics and as reference works for experienced managers. Authors include the nationally known transportation attorneys George Pezold, Raymond Selvaggio, and the late William J. Augello.
