As the May conference calendar makes clear, the spring travel season will be a busy one.
From May 2-4, the Transportation & Logistics Council will hold its 42nd annual conference in Albuquerque, N.M. The agenda includes general sessions on topics such as a transportation industry update with Transportation Intermediaries Association president and CEO Robert Voltmann; a session on supply chain security with a discussion of best practices for minimizing exposure to theft and hijacking; and a legal session titled "Law of the Land, Law of the Jungle," where "lawyers explain the law, and businessmen tell it like it is."
Luncheon speakers include industry figures such as Coyote Logistics CEO Jeff Silver on the first day, and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) deputy administrator Daphne Y. Jefferson on the second day. Register for the T&LC conference here.
