Jeff Kanterman, NFI’s Vice President of Transportation Management, will speak at the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) Supply Chain Conference with popular international convenience store operator, 7-Eleven. The presentation, “Take Control of Your Supply Chain,” will take place Monday, February 13th with 7-Eleven’s Logistics Director, Carl Weaver, at the Gaylord Palm Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
The session delves into NFI’s supply chain solution for the convenience store customer, allowing 7-Eleven to gain better control of its supply chain by implementing a transportation management program and overarching best practices. The solution led to cost efficiencies and streamlined transportation operations.
“The session allows attendees to gain a perspective on how collaboration and implementing best practices can improve vendor management,” said Kanterman. “NFI creates uniquely engineered solutions that best fit the company’s needs and this partnership is a great example of that.”
