Transportation Groups Coordinate Meetings

Oct. 1, 2000
The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA), National Industrial Transportation League (NITL), and Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA)

The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA), National Industrial Transportation League (NITL), and Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) will hold their respective annual meetings simultaneously at the same venue Nov 11-15, 2000, in Fort Lauderdale FL.

NITL and TIA joined forces in San Antonio TX in 1999. IANA added its 10th-anniversary membership meeting and conference to this year's effort.

Besides NITL's TransComp exhibition, combined efforts will feature concurrent educational sessions addressing key transportation and logistics issues. Sessions include "E-Commerce - The Hot New Way to Do Business," "Changing Freight Distribution Patterns," and "Benchmarking 3PLs."

Social events include the NITL annual luncheon, IANA's 10th anniversary awards luncheon, and two evening receptions sponsored individually by IANA and TIA.

Program and TransComp 2000 highlights include an opening session featuring a presentation by Afterburners; a luncheon keynote speech by Samuel K Skinner, president and chief executive officer of US Freightways, former chief of staff to President Bush, and former Secretary of Transportation; presentation of the McCullough Logistics Executive of the Year Award; a container ship exhibition; presentation of IANA's Silver Kingpin Award; and TIA's National Learning Conference.

Details are available by contacting the associations directly and on their web sites: www.nitl.org, www.intermodal.org, and www.tianet.
