JAXPORT hosts Logistics and Intermodal Conference
The Port of Jacksonville will host its inaugural JAXPORT Logistics and Intermodal Conference on March 16-18, in partnership with American Shipper.
A 12-member program committee of industry professionals has formulated conference topics and speakers. There will be plenary sessions on:
' Pressing Logistics & Intermodal Challenges in a Post-Panamax World from the perspective of shippers and service providers.
' New Global Links: Emerging Markets and New Transshipment Opportunities
' The Global Supply Chain: Cargo Control and The Evolution of 3PLs and 4PLs.
'This conference presents an ideal opportunity to network with leaders in the fields of logistics, transportation and port management,” said Conference Chairman Dave Kulik, who also serves as vice chairman of the Jacksonville Port Authority's board of directors and chairman of ANJI-TNT, a joint venture between CEVA Logistics and Shanghai Automotive Industries Corp. “The focus will be on challenges and benefits facing shippers, and panelists are being drawn from around the country to discuss problems common to all logistics and intermodal decision makers.”
The event, which is presented with Jacksonville-based American Shipper, will be held at one of Florida’s premier resorts, the Amelia Island Plantation, just north of Jacksonville.
The event will include an evening cocktail reception on the evening of the March 16 overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, followed by a full day conference of consecutive panel discussions on March 17 focused on challenges and opportunities facing industry professionals. There will be dinner and entertainment that evening followed by a golf tournament on March 18 at one of Florida’s most scenic courses, Ocean Links.
