Who We Serve: Shippers
NASSTRAC provides education, advocacy and provider relations opportunities to beneficial owners of freight (manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, and distributors). If you are a transportation or supply chain management executive, you'll find tremendous value in becoming a member of this industry community.
- As a shipper, you'll stay on top of industry trends, challenges and opportunities through various educational forums, ranging from the NASSTRAC Shippers Conference & Transportation Expo to regional events and webcasts.
- Through NASSTRAC's advocacy initiatives, you'll communicate shipper concerns with greater impact and at a lower cost than if each shipper member acted alone. Through NASSTRAC, you'll also stay on top of the key issues in such areas as security, global trade, and workforce and operations requirements. Make sure to regularly visit NASSTRAC's advocacy website, www.FreightAdvocacy.org.
- You'll build relationships with providers of all service modes (truckload, LTL, intermodal/rail, air, ocean and expedited). These opportunities to have dialogue with providers take place at the Transportation Expo, at other NASSTRAC-sponsored events throughout the year, and via connections made through the Freight Resource Directory. Building such dialogue and relationships with providers is crucial to your success – particularly in a market tight on capacity.
