Supply Chains are changing rapidly. Manufacturers and retailers are trying to find ways to respond to faster shipping demands while keeping inventories low. To keep pace, shippers and 3PLs must be nimble and need good data to drive sound decision making that ensures services levels and control costs.
VP of Marketing Robin Siekerman, Director of Customer Service Kris Hill and Director of Transportation Management Laina Grimland represented The Shippers Group at the 64th Annual Food Shippers of America Conference in sunny Palm Desert California. The Conference Agenda was packed with opportunities for food manufacturers and distributors and logistics providers to network and discover ways to improve and enhance their supply chain performance. Among the approximately 1150 attendees at FSA were representatives of The Shippers Group who met with customers and future customers from the food industry at various events throughout the three day conference. Headlining this year’s conference was the legendary Archy Manning who gave an inspirational message of motivation and resilience in the face of adversity, and astronaut Jim Lovell who shared amazing facts regarding the heroic team effort of the astronauts on board and Mission Control in Houston to return the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission back to earth after the mission suffered a critical failure en route to the moon.
