Distribution Solutions Conference

The Distribution Solutions Conference is your annual operations workout. This conference provides insights and resources that can strengthen your warehouse and transportation operations, addresses key human resource concerns, and provides vision on strategic issues for company leadership. Below are some highlighted subjects from the 2014 agenda. We will have an all-new program available following the Conference Planning Council meeting in early 2015.

2015 Distribution Solutions Conference

About the Distribution Solutions Conference: "I’ve been doing this job for well over 30 years and would say this — If you go in to this conference thinking you know everything, then you don’t need to be there. Every time I go, I bring back pieces of information that are going to help my company. I also would say that interaction with people there is really valuable. The biggest thing I have picked up at the conference is that I have met people who I can call, without hesitation, to ask them a question, to ask them what they think. That’s a big deal to me."
