F&P’s Steve Marshall will be presenting next month at the 30th Annual Conference on Transportation Innovation and Cost Savings.  The conference will be held September 26, 2016 at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, Canada.  Steve will speak on “When a Catastrophic Truck Accident Exceeds Insurance Coverage,” discussing the importance of excess insurance coverage in the event of catastrophic losses.

The Annual Conference on Transportation Innovation and Cost Savings is the original, largest and most prestigious one day educational and networking event for shippers and supply chain practitioners in North America. Over the past thirty years it has attracted manufacturers, carriers, intermediaries and distribution executives throughout North America to learn from each other as to the newest cutting edge innovations in logistics in the transportation community.  Attendees are updated on changing regulations in surface transport as well as freight forwarding and food safety.  The objective of the conference is to have each participant take away information which will assist them throughout the year in cost savings and connect with others to broaden their circle and influence.  Registration has grown to include many senior decision-makers within the logistics industry.  Visit http://transportconference.ca/ for additional information.
