I’m happy to announce that Echo Global Logistics is once again sponsoring the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) EDGE 2023 conference in Kissimmee, Florida, from October 1-4. As in previous years, I’ll be joined by a handful of Echo leaders and experts to discuss how our best-in-class technology, in conjunction with our logistics experts, helps companies of all sizes improve their transportation capabilities and innovate their supply chains. 

Over the course of three and a half days, the event brings together more than 2,700 innovators and professionals from across the supply chain profession. In accordance with the theme of this year’s conference, Foundation to Future, we’re looking forward to discussing the future of technology, global trends, and what the industry will look like as transportation and logistics strategies and tools continue to advance.
