For those of you who may have missed it, one of the best learning tools available today is the NASSTRAC View. Launched in December, the View meets the First Friday of every month. Each month a different topic is selected. Recent topics discussed were: “Behind the Curtain: A Look at the Internal Issues Facing Shippers” and “Beyond the Dock: How Carrier Issues Impact Transportation Operations”. Only NASSTRAC regular members are invited to a limited number of slots. The folks who have attended the sessions have commented that it is a great place to learn. One of the attendees commented: “where else can you sit at the table with some of the largest shippers in the country and share issues, concerns, and ideas?”
New topics are generated by attendee suggestions. To keep the discussion flowing, we have guest moderators who make sure every voice is heard and all issues are brought forward. Topics under consideration for future Views are: “Why Those Fuel Surcharges Will Never Go Away” and “Digital Disruptions in Freight Transportation”. You don’t want to miss these!
We know how difficult your job can be. The day to day pull of urgent requests and problems can be overwhelming. We don’t want to add to that burden…but think…what if you carve out an hour once a month to join us during lunch? You will be able to talk with your colleagues about issues that are affecting your operation, share solutions and ideas, without ever leaving your desk. You don’t have to pay anything or travel anywhere. The only price of admission is your willingness to join the conversation. The rewards could be enormous. You may find a solution to an issue that has been challenging you for months, or you may be able to help a colleague with a solution that has worked for you. If recent topics aren’t of interest, you can suggest a future topic that does concern you. It’s in your hands.
NASSTRAC provides the forum, you can provide the voice. Sign up for the next NASSTRAC View and join the conversation.
