On April 27th, GlobalTranz participated in National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

The event allows children to be exposed to the work life of their parents and gives them an early introduction to a typical work day. According to the Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation, this day shows kids “the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future, and allowing them to begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success.”

GlobalTranz organized a series of events for the day, including tours of the office, games, and the opportunity to get up close and personal with a full-size tractor trailer truck – courtesy of Swift Transportation.

To create real-world working environment for the kids to experience, GlobalTranz’ head of recruiting taught the group what it was like to be an applicant at GlobalTranz. HR then hired them as employees for the day and explained how payroll and taxes work. Timecards were created for each child, so all “hours worked” could be recorded.  A GlobalTranz store was set up so kids could spend their earnings on t-shirts, Frisbees, sunglasses and other swag.

Exploring the Swift Transportation truck and meeting the truck driver were big highlights of the day – providing kids an exciting and fun way to learn about the business of logistics.

Earlier this week, GlobalTranz hosted its 2017 Freight Agent Conference in Ft. Lauderdale. A record turnout of nearly 300 freight agents, carriers, shippers, technology partners and investors participated in the event – making it GlobalTranz’ largest event ever.

An expanded agenda and a plethora of well-respected industry speakers were key drivers for the record turnout. Here are few highlights:

Keynote Speaker, Erik Wahl, at GlobalTranz 2017 Freight Agent Conference

After a state of the union presentation by Chairman and CEO Bob Farrell to kick things off, the main keynote speaker, Erik Wahl, an internationally recognized artist, author and TED speaker, captivated the audience with his ability to combine art with inspiring thoughts on innovation and risk-taking. Two of the paintings Erik created during his presentation were auctioned off during the evening event and raised nearly $10,000 for charity!

Perspectives on the logistics industry were delivered by two outside speakers. The first of which was presented by John Larkin, CFA, managing director and head of transportation capital markets research at Stifel, Nicolaus & Co., who shared a wealth of industry data and indicators on how the logistics industry is evolving. The following day, Thom Albrecht, president of Sword & Sea Transport Advisors, presented his bullish views on freight industry growth, including many fascinating statistics on e-commerce growth and its evolving impact on logistics.

A deep dive into data and technology issues was delivered via a panel discussion featuring executives from DAT, MacroPoint, SMC3 and Truckstop.com, all key partners of GlobalTranz who engaged in an energetic debate on the value of data in improving freight management and how electronic logging devices (ELD) will impact the industry.

No discussion on freight management would be complete without hearing from the shippers themselves, and executives from LG Electronics and Rexnord offered their views of how shippers are addressing logistics challenges and how they weigh price vs. service in selecting 3PL partners.

After a teaser press announcement made earlier this month, attendees were excited to see the grand unveiling of the GTZrave™ technology platform, delivered by GlobalTranz CTO Greg Carter, who shared how GlobalTranz is leading the market in process automation and enabling dynamic collaboration between shippers, carriers and freight agents via next-generation technology solutions.

The conference concluded with a freight agent panel discussion, moderated by Jim Weatherly who joined GlobalTranz following the acquisition of Global Freight Source in January. Five of GlobalTranz’ top freight agents participated in a discussion of what it takes to grow a successful freight agency.

The conference was made possible by terrific carrier and technology partners who sponsored the event and actively participated in a partner showcase. Thank you to our:

In the end, attendees all seemed to agree – the GlobalTranz 2017 Freight Agent Conference achieved its objectives of delivering industry insights, generating ideas to help GlobalTranz’ agents grow their businesses, and providing a forum to forge and cultivate relationships.
