For practical, up-to-date information about transportation law, claims, and contracts, break out your shorts and sandals and head to Florida for the Transportation & Logistics Council's 38th Annual Conference. The event, a joint program with the Transportation Loss Prevention & Security Association, will be held April 23-25 in Orlando.
Workshops will cover a host of subjects logistics managers deal with daily. Examples include risk management and insurance, freight claims FAQs and hot topics, and the implications of recent legal decisions affecting transportation and logistics. Technical sessions and a panel called "The Crystal Ball: What's Ahead for the Transportation Industry" (featuring forecasts and analysis by members of the press, including our own Senior Editor Mark Solomon) round out the program.
The conference will also feature some big-name luncheon speakers. On Monday, April 23, attendees will hear from Maj. Gen. John B. Cooper, director logistics, installations, and mission support for the U.S. Air Force. The speaker for Tuesday, April 24, will be Jack Holmes, president of UPS Freight.
On Sunday, April 22, prior to the start of the conference, TLC will offer three full-day educational seminars taught by nationally known experts: "Freight Claims in Plain English," "Contracting for Transportation and Logistics Services," and "Transportation, Logistics, and the Law."
