Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 09, 2011
Truckload carriers, LTL carriers, freight brokers, 3PL, and shippers alike will travel from all over the United States to meet in Chicago for one of the biggest events of its kind in the transportation industry: McLeod Software’s 2011 Users’ Conference. The event will take place September 25-27 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers.
Conference attendees will hear more than 50 presentations including more than 20 McLeod Software customers sharing best practices about how they leverage software technology to drive innovation, competitive advantage, and growth in their businesses. Featured speakers for the two-day long event include the Chairman of Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and President & CEO of Fikes Truck Line, Gary Salisbury, the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) President & CEO, Robert Voltmann, and the Women In Trucking President & CEO, Ellen Voie.
During the Users’ Conference, McLeod Software and The Brimmer College of Business and Information Science at Tuskegee University will discuss their joint study on how costs and competition impact the overall pricing process for motor carriers. This study analyzes how carriers integrate their costs -- fixed, variable, and mixed -- and competition into the pricing equation to create value for customers and at the same time create value and profitability for themselves.
The free one-on-one software training for McLeod customers and the Trucking Technology & Services Tradeshow that features more than 50 vendors demonstrating their cutting edge technology and services will serve as mainstays of the conference.
