NASSTRAC will host several Transportation Networking Meetings in various markets throughout the United States in October and November. The primary goal of these meetings is to provide a local venue where shippers have the opportunity to network with other freight transportation executives, hear perspectives on industry issues, and learn from best practices in transportation and supply chain management.
Each event will feature a networking luncheon, followed by a panel of shippers who will discuss opportunities, challenges and issues in freight transportation and supply chain management. "We've found that periodically hosting these local meetings is filling a void in the marketplace," says Brian Everett, NASSTRAC's executive director. "Transportation executives who have participated have said they find relevant education and networking, which is big part of NASSTRAC's mission."
The schedule of remaining regional meetings is as follows:
- Oct. 18 at LifeWay Christian Resources headquarters in downtown Nashville, Tenn.
- Oct. 25 at Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's campus in Chicago, Ill.
- Oct. 30 at Target Corp. in Minneapolis, Minn.
- Nov. 9, at the Renaissance Long Beach in Long Beach, Calif.
