Whether you're a buyer or a provider of transportation services, your world is an uncertain one. Economic volatility, changing regulations, and capacity constraints are challenging even the most experienced managers. To get an idea of what's happening and how others are dealing with those issues, head on down to Orlando, Fla., for NASSTRAC's 2012 Logistics Conference and Expo, April 29 to May 2.
Topics on the agenda include a view from Wall Street of the economy and its impact on freight transportation; an update on legal, regulatory, and legislative decisions affecting transportation and supply chain operations; and emerging trends and technologies. In addition, executives from Dell and Stein Mart will speak about their companies' supply chain transformations.
The invited keynote speaker is Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.), chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. And the popular motor carrier CEO panel returns for a high-level discussion of the biggest challenges facing the trucking industry. Panelists include Derek Leathers, president and COO of Werner Enterprises; Bill Logue, president and CEO, FedEx Freight; Jack Holmes, president of UPS Freight; Roy Slagle, president and CEO of ABF Freight System; John White, president of U.S. Xpress; and Rob Estes, president and CEO, Estes Express.
