Coming Oct. 8: Future of Freight and Supply Chain Symposium

U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Sen. Ben Cardin and Rep. Sam Graves are among the guests who will be featured in an Oct. 8 virtual symposium, “The Future of Freight and Supply Chain Management.”

Transport Topics is partnering with CQ Roll Call to produce the event, beginning at 10 a.m. ET. The event will be streamed on this page. (See full agenda and reserve your seat here.)

The symposium will feature panel discussions among industry leaders as well as one-on-one interviews with Chao, Cardin (a Democrat from Maryland) and Graves (a Republican from Missouri). 

The resilience of the supply chain has risen in importance this year. Hurricanes, wildfires and the COVID-19 pandemic have forced decision-makers to think differently about the way goods move. This symposium taps into the expertise of both policymakers and business leaders.

Business leaders will discuss how the year’s crises will change supply chains in the long run, and address ways in which fleets, shippers and 3PLs can better prepare for volatile freight demand. Participants will include:

  • Drew Wilkerson, XPO Logistics
  • Chad England, C.R. England
  • SId Brown, NFI Industries
  • Jason Ringgenburg, YRC Worldwide
  • Drew McElroy, Transfix

This event will be Session One of a two-part virtual event series marking a collaboration between Transport Topics and CQ Roll Call.
