Looking to stay current on freight transportation regulations, federal and state laws, contracting practices, and liability regimes? One great way to learn what's new (or maybe learn what you should know but don't) is to attend the Transportation & Logistics Council's 41st Annual Conference, slated for March 23-25 in Orlando, Fla. T&LC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the interests of shippers through education and representation in issues relating to freight transportation.
The conference will feature general sessions and workshops by top experts, including respected transportation attorneys and experienced practitioners, all designed to give attendees information and advice they can take back and use in their everyday operations. The program will cover all modes of transportation and address a wide range of topics, including loss prevention and mitigation of damages, contracts and risk management, the National Motor Freight Classification, new laws and regulations, reverse logistics, and freight claims. The conference will also include a panel of leading transportation attorneys, who will address current issues and recent court decisions—a highly anticipated annual event.
Monday's guest luncheon speaker will be James Welch, CEO of the $5 billion transportation company YRC Worldwide and its various operating companies.
The conference will be preceded by three optional full-day seminars presented by leading transportation attorneys on Sunday, March 22: Contracting for Transportation and Logistics Services; Freight Claims in Plain English; and Transportation, Logistics and the Law, plus a primer class for those preparing to take the Certified Claims Professional (CCP) exam.
