It was a month of conferences and events for the IDS team. From DSA to IRCE to NCLC, we were well represented as a leading ecommerce, direct selling and confectionary industry supplier. This past week, Rick LaGore and I attended the National Confectioners Logistics Council (NCLC) meeting in Baltimore, MD.
The NCLC is a great event each year that brings together shippers (confectionery manufacturers) and suppliers (transportation and warehouse 3PLs/brokers like ourselves, etc). This year it brought us to the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD for a few days to discuss transportation issues, new policies and what the future holds for the confectionary industry. The meeting gives us the opportunity and forum to meet with customers and other providers to discuss our networks, regulations and prepare for the upcoming holiday season.
This year we discussed cargo theft, security, new regulations and policies that will affect the confectionery industry, shippers and providers in the next year and going forward. IDS is a newer provider at the event, attending the past 2 years, but we are excited about the opportunity to become more involved in the near future.
If you need temperature controlled transportation or warehousing/order fulfillment services, please contact IDS for a quote or free consultation. We are providing warehouse, TL/LTL and intermodal transportation for confectioners and other food/beverage companies. Check us out at teamidslogistics.com for more information.
