As part of its outreach to shippers in various metro markets throughout the country, NASSTRAC hosted a regional meeting Nov. 9 in Minneapolis, MN. The event attracted nearly 70 transportation executives, many of whom are decision-makers with manufacturers, retailers, and distributors. They represented 3M, Ingersoll Rand Co., General Mills, Deluxe Corporation, Land O'Lakes, and Pitney Bowes, to name a few. Thanks to our supporting members at the corporate offices of Best Buy Co. for graciously hosting this event!
Brian Everett, NASSTRAC's Executive Director, facilitated dialogue among shippers concerned about advocacy issues such as potential changes to truck driver hours of service, truck size and weight limitations, and a lack of long-range planning and investment in U.S. roadways and bridges. Participants on the Shipper's Panel included Eric Morley, Senior Director - Supply Chain at Best Buy Co, Steve Carter, Director of Transportation Strategy, Target Corp., and Steve Weiby, Vice President of Transportation, C.H. Robinson Worldwide.
