WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 15, 2022 — The Customized Logistics & Delivery Association’s (CLDA) Final Mile Forum & Expo will be held from February 9 to 11, 2023 in New Orleans. Mardi Gras will be in full swing during this, the industry’s largest gathering of last-mile providers and shippers. It will be held at the Hyatt Regency, which is minutes from the historic French Quarter, Arts District and Mississippi Riverfront.
The three-day event will be built around the theme of “Winning the Next Mile.” “The current final-mile environment continues to challenge many of us in this space,” says Event Chair Thomas Jowers. “This conference will be the year’s best opportunity for last-mile providers to expand their knowledge, connect with shippers, build their networks and explore the latest products and solutions to take on these challenges.”
Educational sessions will include:
- Freightonomics: Today, Tomorrow, and Beyond by Anthony C. Smith, Chief Economist, Freightwaves
- Risk Management: Tips, Tricks, and Turmoil, featuring a panel of insurance professionals operating in the final-mile space
- Contractors and Compliance — Organizing Your Business, a panel of attorneys with a concentration in logistics
- IC Final Mile Volatility by Attorney Gregory Feary, Partner, Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary
- Environmental, Social & Corporate Governance: ESG – The New Corporate Culture, a discussion with sustainability pros
- A C-suite Open Mic where experienced leaders within each segment of the final-mile space will respond to the pressing questions of those at the conference.
In addition, there will be intimate round tables with shippers where couriers can discuss how to gain their business and learn more about what they are looking for. The conference will also offer ample opportunities for couriers to network with each other, to expand their footprints and to pick the brains of their peers to solve common problems.
