Shipper Perspectives: "Aligning Your Value with the Needs of Your Customer"
The business needs and demands from your customers continue to shift as outside forces drive change. Transportation and supply chain decision-makers are looking to you for assistance. TMSA will assemble a panel of marquee shippers who will give you insights and perspectives on these critical questions - ultimately giving your more market intelligence to shift or fine-tune your Value Proposition:

  • What are the supply chain fulfillment challenges that currently take up most of your focus and energy?
  • What are the transportation capacity and service issues that concern you most in the current market environment?
  • What are the most critical deliverables that your company's senior leadership is counting on your procurement team delivering this year?
  • What are the metrics that your company uses to measure success of your procurement team's efforts?
  • How do you measure the success of your carrier, provider and technology partner relationships?
  • What emerging trends do you see that will impact your business and supply chain in the next 3-5 years?
Shipper panelists include: 

Troy Turner, Logistics Procurement Transportation Manager, Unilever. Previously Logistics Operations Manager, Contract Manufacturing Manager, Plastics Department Manager, Production Supervisor, and Industrial Engineer at Unilever.

Julia Cope, IB Senior Transportation Buyer, General Motors. Formerly Global Account Director, Logistics Engineer, and Contract Manager with CEVA Logistics.
