Finished Vehicle Logistics North America Conference

I just wrapped up the 2012 FVLNA conference in Newport Beach CA. Great show!! Truly impressed with the quality of the show, topics covered, entertainment venues including the Newport Beach dinner cruise. I found it to be a great way for us to promote our services in front of a very direct OEM cliental. I had a great opportunity to open up the conference wide discussion of “Solving the Capacity Challenge” which was a very exciting opportunity for both MetroGistics and myself. Tried to really show the OEM’s the value in working with a 3PL and keeping them close when the needs arise. All I heard all conference was the need for additional capacity. There are over 8000 unique auto hauling companies out there. We are connected to the best in the business and can bring that capacity. Technology and process gives us the ability to link all these players together, which is our major value add. I think I had people listening and thinking about the potential, which is all you can ask for when presenting right??

My favorite part of the presentation was my random plug for helping at the local humane society and animal shelters. I put a picture of my Golden Kash up the big screen and talked briefly to our involvement to the local shelters and I had a tremendously positive reaction after I was through. I was nervous about going off on this tangent speaking to a group of 300 executives, but I really think people connected and hopefully will bring this home with them even though they might not care about using our services.

All in all it was a great show and really appreciated the opportunities, great job Matt, Louis, Ashleigh, Joanna, Alexa, and Gavin for running the show!
