Among the topics of discussion will be the trucking and domestic intermodal market and pricing trends, cargo efficiency and visibility, cross-border NAFTA trade, and the impact of new and upcoming regulatory environments.

FINDING AND RETAINING TALENT:
CARRYING THE INDUSTRY FORWARD

Location: Habersham Ballroom

It’s a common problem with no easy solution: You’re the department head of a major trucking or railroad company with a talented, but aging Baby Boomer staff. Where do you turn to ensure a smooth transition as, one by one, your staff — and decades of experience and talent — prepares to call it a career? For many, the answer lies in a youth movement, but attracting the next generation of talented, driven, growth-oriented employees comes with numerous risks, the biggest of which is that you can’t afford to make a hiring mistake. Worse, the competition for young talent has never been greater, not only within the transportation industry but from any number of other industries confronting the same challenge. Improving the visibility into logistics as a career, then, has never been more important. In this highly anticipated gathering, JOC Events will bring together more than 100 Atlanta area high school and university students to meet with representatives from multiple transportation sectors in a roundtable environment to talk about the value of a career in logistics. One of the most popular, and positively reviewed elements of the 2016 JOC Inland Distribution Conference, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience for all involved.

STATEMENT OF JOC CONFERENCE EDITORIAL POLICY:
All JOC conference programs are developed independently by the JOC editorial team based on input from a wide variety of industry experts and the editors' own industry knowledge, contacts and experience. The editorial team determines session topics and extends all speaker invitations based entirely on the goal of providing highly relevant content for conference attendees. Certain sponsors may give welcoming remarks or introduce certain sessions, but if a sponsor appears as a bona-fide speaker it will be because of an editorial invitation, not as a benefit of sponsorship. Sponsorship benefits do not include speaking on a program.
