I’m excited to announce that Echo Global Logistics is sponsoring the upcoming Council of Supply Chain Management (CSCMP) EDGE 2022 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, from September 18-21.  This year, I’ll be joined by other leaders from Echo to discuss how our technology combined with our logistics experts are helping leading companies address their shipping needs with improved efficiencies and better results.  

As the first in-person CSCMP EDGE conference post-pandemic, this event is a great opportunity to discover the latest innovations, strategies, and best practices that industry leaders have been using to mitigate the shifts that the global supply chain has been experiencing over the last few years. This year, we’re looking forward to greeting clients and those interested in our offerings at two locations at the conference: 

  • Booth 121 at the Supply Chain Exchange Exhibition
    • Stop by the booth and scan your badge to be entered in a raffle to win a portable open flame stove
    • On Monday, September 19, we will be hosting an in-booth happy hour from 4 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
  • The Headshot Studio – where anyone can get a headshot photo taken for your personal online profile such as LinkedIn, compliments of Echo (located in the Presidential Mezzanine Foyer)
    • Sunday, September 18
      • Noon – 5 p.m. 
    • Monday, September 19
      • 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
    • Tuesday, September 20
      • 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

In the spirit of the conference theme “Positioned to Win,” we will be discussing how Echo’s technology-enabled transportation solutions have set our clients up for success this past year. We’ve helped companies like the Marmon Group, an American industrial holding company, drive a 21% reduction in freight spend. We’ve also helped companies like Scotts-MiracleGro achieve over 95% of on-time delivery by working with Echo. Whether your transportation goals are focused on cost reduction, improved service, or a quicker freight turn-around, we look forward to sharing how we have leveraged our scale, capacity, and proprietary technology to provide our clients with strategic supply chain solutions and positioned them to “win” year over year.  

CSCMP offers a great opportunity for Echo to connect in person with our clients and others in the industry as we share our insights as a top-rated third-party logistics partner and for participants to stay up to date on industry news and trends. I look forward to joining the CSCMP community and attending this premier event and hope you will join me.
