Shipper Symposium 2014 – Day 2 Recap
Day 2 kicked off early for many Shipper Symposium attendees brave enough to face the cooler temps and stormy weather forecast to attend the 12th Annual Charity Golf Classic, but it was worth the gamble as blue skies and sunshine prevailed by late morning.
Instead of golf, some attendees chose to check out the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. As the 13th Presidential Library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration the museum is also a Federal agency and is located on the campus of Southern Methodist University.

After lunch, the educational breakout sessions kicked off. Is it us or was it hard to decide which one to attend? Structured as panels, each of the 5 sessions included Transplace customers, partners and spokespeople telling a detailed story of how a strong, communicative relationship drove innovation, automation and real business benefits. The Q&A after the standing room only session on “Network Optimization: Planning for Execution” moderated by Ben Cubitt was lively as attendees queried speakers from Zep Inc, Llamasoft and Diamond Foods. According to Ricky Guida from Zep, “Network design is giving us control and visibility that frankly, we’ve never had before.”
Finally, we welcomed Vicente Fox to the Shipper Symposium and he took the stage to kick off our Charity Dinner by giving a wonderful overview of his charity benefitting from today’s golf outing and the dinner’s raffle and silent auction. Nothing beats good company, good food and a good cause to support!
