Even in our digital age, there's nothing like face-to-face interaction when it comes to finding the right logistics partners—particularly for complex multimodal moves. The Cargo Logistics America (CLA) expo and conference will give attendees an opportunity to do just that. The event, which takes place Dec. 2 and 3 at the San Diego Convention Center, aims to connect freight owners with freight movers—fostering multimodal synergy between diverse players in import, export, and domestic supply chains.
Featuring over 150 exhibitors, the exposition floor will showcase products, services, technologies, and equipment designed to optimize an entire supply chain.
The conference will feature keynote addresses by Drew Greenblatt, president and owner of Marlin Steel Wire Products LLC; Stephen Flowers, president of global freight forwarding at UPS Supply Chain Solutions; and Robert Voltmann, president and CEO of the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA).
Attendees who want to dig deep into specific topics can choose from seminar tracks on subjects like global trade, port productivity, and issues faced by shippers in the U.S. heartland. The conference also features a distribution logistics summit organized by DC Velocity. The summit includes a two-part shipper/carrier roundtable discussion on controlling transportation/distribution costs and coping with changing regulations and pricing structures; a session on how you can use "future" logistics technologies today; and sessions on the challenges of omnichannel distribution and strategies for navigating changes brought by the omnichannel revolution.
