Did you know that the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) hosts an annual Refrigerated Meeting? This year’s event is set for next month, July 14-16, at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Aside from specialized educational sessions with a focus on temperature-controlled operations, the event offers attendees the opportunity to reconnect with unique networking opportunities, and a golf tournament.
“I’m coming down from Canada and will drive a truck as an essential worker if I have to,” shared Erb Group of Companies’ President and CEO Wendell Erb. “I’ve been attending this event since the late ’90s and not only find the meeting very educational but we have made great friends in the industry through the event. We have a great agenda and speakers lined up so let’s get back to some normality – join me at this Summer’s Reefer meeting.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear a Refrigerated Industry Economic Outlook from economist Avery Vise; a keynote address by Former Acting Attorney General of the United States, Matthew Whitaker; welcome remarks from TCA Chairman, D.M. Bowman, Inc.’s Jim Ward, Refrigerated Division Chairman Dutch Maid Logistics’ Sam Burrer, and TCA’s President John Lyboldt; as well as an insightful panel discussion on Insurance Strategies – Captive, Self-Insured, and Regular Market.
