Updates from Our Keynotes:

Brian Hancock

Executive V.P., Kansas City Southern

"With freight exempted from restrictions, our primary objectives are to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our employees and to maintain the continuity of our business operations with excellent service and operational continuity. We work daily with CBP and SAT to maintain very fluid border operations.We continue to operate two dispatch locations in both the U.S. and Mexico to prevent mass exposure in our critical operating roles.”

Doug Waggoner

Chairman & CEO, Echo Global Logistics

2017-2019 - the #1 3PL Provider

"Millennials form the majority of Echo’s workforce. In the office and now as our employees work from home, we use Workplace extensively as a tool for internal communications and sharing. This allows us to host live video town hall meetings. Workplace continues to be invaluable during this crisis as we move a lot of freight without missing a beat. Times like these create a certain esprit de corps."

We continue to monitor closely the guidelines of the CDC and other health organizations as your safety and well-being are our #1 concern.
