NASSTRAC Comes To Jacksonville, Florida

As part of its outreach to shippers in various metro markets throughout the country, NASSTRAC hosted a regional meeting Oct. 4 in Jacksonville, Fla. The event attracted nearly 30 transportation executives, many of whom are decision-makers with manufacturers, retailers, and distributors, including Pilot Pen Corp. of America, Anchor Glass Container, Baker Distributing Co., Great Dane Trailers, Stein Mart, Coach, Inc., and Colomer USA. 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.
