The Falvey Shippers team recently attended one of the industry’s biggest events: the TIA 2019 Capital Ideas Conference & Exhibition. Held on April 10-13 in Universal Orlando, Florida, the conference hosted a record-breaking 1,700+ brokerage-based logistics professionals from all across North America. Attendees get the opportunity to experience and evaluate the latest 3PL technologies, as well as share ideas and best practices with peers.
This was the second year Falvey Shippers participated as exhibitors and our two vice presidents, William Worthington and Jay Jeannotte, were onsite to represent our company.
“TIA is an incredible organization that always puts on an outstanding event,” William said. “It's always great to get together with industry professionals to discuss the latest trends and see the newest technology.”
TIA 2019 featured more than 100 3PL educational sessions and 10 networking events, the latter including a golf outing, dinner on the beach, and 5K fun run. The sessions covered a wide range of 3PL topics, but some of the most popular were:
- Applying A.I. to Work Smarter, Not Harder
- Cross Border Changes and Trade Tariffs & Restrictions: Navigating Sudden Changes for Your Customers
- Building a Supply Chain Value Proposition
- Warehousing: Increase Your Cubic Space and Value Proposition
- Cybersecurity: The Threats Have Evolved, Have You?
- Surviving Real Life Claims Issues Today
Throughout all of the activities and sessions, attendees got exposure to the newest 3PL technologies and latest industry developments, learning how they could take control of both.
As Jay noted about his experience at TIA 2109, “This was our second year exhibiting and we feel our solution is really gaining traction in the market as more and more people look to streamline their operations across all aspects of their supply chain.”
TIA 2020 will be held in Austin, TX and Falvey Shippers is looking forward to participating again.
