You may or may not have already heard of the Marisol Transportation & Trade Workshops. Just in case you missed it, our team of transportation and trade professionals are beginning to host workshops in various U.S. cities to educate companies and help them make informed logistics decisions.
In our first workshop, we covered a handful of transportation and trade topics. As we looked back on the first workshop, our team recognized that other partners within the Roadrunner Global Solutions segment could provide additional value due to their respective logistics specialization.
Therefore, our next workshop has taken a slightly new approach.
While the Marisol International team will still provide an update on a number of global logistics topics, we have also invited Prime Distribution Services to co-host the upcoming Bentonville workshop with us.
First and foremost, the Prime Distribution Services team brings tremendous knowledge directly relating to warehousing and distribution, which we know is extremely important to U.S. importers.
Secondly, Prime specializes in retail logistics and operates an industry-leading Walmart consolidation program.
Prime helps Walmart suppliers in numerous ways. Prime offers warehouse storage space in key locations across the United States, consolidation services to minimize transportation spend, retailer compliance advice in regards to items such as MABD (Must Arrive By Date) requirements, visibility tools to help suppliers manage inventory and much more.
By partnering with Prime, our team feels the next Transportation and Trade Workshop will offer an expanded amount of educational content to help our attendees plan for supply chain success in 2017.
So, what exactly will you be learning about if you attend?
Our teams will be providing a general ocean and air market update, discuss recent and upcoming U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) compliance changes, explain how to prepare your supply chain for the Chinese New Year, how the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill could help you save on import duties and taxes, provide a snapshot of the port labor agreement expiration dates, explain the benefits of retail consolidation and provide a reminder checklist when planning for supply chain success in 2017.
Here's the details:
When: Thursday, November 3, 2016
Where: DoubleTree Suites - 301 SE Walton Blvd, Bentonville, AR 72712
The free workshop will begin at 3:00 PM with a networking happy hour to follow the workshop, from 4:30-5:30 PM.
