Transportation and supply chain executives find education and networking value at these NASSTRAC regional meetings throughout the U.S.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
NASSTRAC, otherwise known as the National Shippers Strategic Transportation Council, announces its schedule of regional meetings that will take place in various markets throughout the United States this fall.
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. NASSTRAC provides education, advocacy, and provider relations for professionals involved in all modes of transportation.
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,” said 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.”
Shipper panelists include Alex Albertini, Director of Logistics, Charlotte Russe; Mitch Bentz, Director of Logistics, Lewis Hyman Inc.; David Friedson, Director of Logistics, Evergreen Packaging; Brenda Marasa, General Manager, The Packaging Wholesalers; Michael Ritter, Senior VP of Operations, Hunter Fan Company; and Carey Skoglund, National Logistics Manager, Ace Hardware.
The schedule of regional meetings will take place on the following dates at these locations:
- Sept. 20 at the FedEx Memphis World Hub in Memphis, Tenn. (includes a tour of the facility).
- 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.
