President’s Report our

49th Annual Conference

As President of the Transportation & Logistics Council, I would like to greatly thank our long-time members and new attendees for joining us in San Diego this month for the 49th Annual Transportation & Logistics Council Conference (“TLC”). The conference was a huge success with a wide range of shippers, attorneys, and transportation service providers in attendance.  As always, it was a great opportunity for networking and learning.  A special thanks to our exhibitors and sponsors who seized the opportunity to tout their companies and relay the latest industry trends and updates to others.  At the conference, TLC rolled out its new logo and its brand-new website with enhanced content and functionality, including the ability to register for webinars and our annual conference online.

 It was an eventful and packed agenda, commencing with Sunday’s optional seminars and the CCP Primer Class on the first “unofficial” day of the conference along with an evening hospitality reception.  The conference officially kicked off on Monday with our Past, Present, and Future General Session and workshops that provided invaluable information and industry updates.  Throughout the conference, we heard from transportation professionals from Molson Coors to Butterball, ArcBest to FedEx, Freight Think to NMFTA, and other well-respected luncheon speakers including Mario Cordero, Executive Director of the Port of Long Beach and Robert Loya, CEO of T.G.S. Logistics. 

The President’s Reception offered an opportunity to further network, discuss conference highlights, and informally transfer knowledge amongst peers.    The conference capped off on Wednesday with our Freight Claims – Questions & Answers session and the awarding of the conference Grand Prize donated by Trans Audit and won by Michel Taylor with FedEx Ground.

We hope y’all will join us at our 50th Annual Conference on March 18-20, 2024, in Charleston, SC!  Be on the look out for Early Bird conference registration!
