Prominent shipper to host Broward international committee
Calvin Miller, the president and chief executive officer of Associated Grocers of Florida, will be the speaker and host for a special off-site, 'on location' meeting of the International Committee of the Broward Alliance on Jan. 3.
Associated Grocers is a major shipper using overland intermodal, ocean, and air transport services. The company this year relocated its primary distribution center and base of operations from Ocala to Pompano Beach, citing the new facility's proximity to Interstate 95, the Florida Turnpike, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and Port Everglades to help with its strategic logistics positioning. The company also obtained free trade zone status for its distribution facility, from where it ships goods to stores and customers throughout the Southeast and in 41 countries.
Associated Grocers also has a new 100,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility in Freeport, Bahamas.
The one-hour meeting of the International Committee starts at 8:30 a.m. at Associated Grocers' administrative building, 1141 S.W. 12th Avenue, in Pompano Beach.
Space is limited. Anyone interested in attending must RSVP to Sara Feder at the Broward Alliance by e-mailing email@example.com.
