If you're responsible for logistics contracts, freight charge disputes, loss and damage claims, and the like, you'll want to block out your schedule for the Transportation & Logistics Council's (TLC) 37th annual conference. The event, scheduled for April 4-6 in St. Louis, is a must-attend.
The TLC's annual conference is unique in its approach to education, emphasizing practical advice on technical matters from nationally known transportation lawyers, federal regulators, and carrier executives. Attendees will come away with a clear understanding of how federal and international laws and regulations, claims practices, and recent legal decisions will affect their day-to-day operations.
Examples of sessions at this year's conference include the popular "Law of the Land, Law of the Jungle," where "lawyers explain the law and businessmen tell it like it is"; a discussion by carriers and Department of Transportation policymakers of the new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration motor carrier safety ratings; and how law enforcement deals with cargo theft.
TLC, a not-for-profit corporation serving the shipping community through education and legislative representation, will also offer three optional, full-day seminars on Sunday, April 3: For more details and registration information, visit www.tlcouncil.org/conferences or call TLC at (631) 549-8988.
