Keynotes
Logistics-on-Demand and the Rise of Intelligent Freight Planning
  • Sourcing freight capacity has long been a manual and opaque process for both shippers and carriers.
  • The traditional approach is unsustainable in today’s tight market, where it exacerbates the industry-wide capacity shortage, leading to poor visibility, limited options, and the inability to plan effectively.
  • Technology platforms enable a more efficient process of matching shippers to carriers and drivers. Shippers gain access to capacity by unlocking a larger ecosystem of drivers, and carriers and drivers gain the ability to see and choose loads that fit into their operations. This improves utilization, reduces the time to plan, and improves cost.
  • In this keynote, Uber Freight and Land O’Lakes examine how technology can enable shippers to find and source capacity instantly, saving them time and money while improving their ability to make transportation decisions, solve urgent capacity needs, and plan their network.

Uber Freight Bill Digeret Director Uber Freight

Land O'Lakes Yone Dewberry CSCO Land O'Lakes

New for 2019
Get to grips with the complexities of cold supply chain logistics

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) most food-born illnesses begin or expand within the cold chain. With regular news stories discussing E. coli outbreaks, horse meat scandals and unsafe use-by dates on meat, it’s more critical than ever to have an accurate chain of custody for consumer safety and to protect your brand.

Join this session to immerse yourself in the latest advances in temperature-controlled logistics solutions including IoT and blockchain that will help you improve your cold chain, as well as the partnerships that are needed to create trust.

Topics being discussed include:

  • Blockchain: Find out the relevance of blockchain technology to your particular use case and how it can engender provenance and trust throughout your cold chain.
  • The rise of IoT: Learn how IoT technologies are providing out-of-the-box connectivity and real-time data across the cold chain to proactively identify product degradation and contamination.
  • Minimize costs: Understand how to best ensure that costs are kept low without comprising regulatory compliance or quality.
  • Partnerships: Trust is pivotal to the food industry. Provenance and visibility are critical to obtaining and retaining your customer’s confidence. Develop partnerships with 3PLs and tech vendors to help establish this.

Join us in Atlanta to formulate a food industry that delivers the nutritious, delicious and safe produce that we all desire.
