He will address key voter issues, and the changing landscape of transportation regulations and legislature on the hill. Best-selling author Alec Ross will also give keynote remarks on the rapidly changing technology landscape.

The Jump Start 2021 agenda includes in-depth panel discussions of trends in the supply chain arena, transportation regulations, emerging supply chain technology, and supply chain infrastructure. The panel lineup has been tailored to provide carrier, shipper, 3PL and other supply chain attendees with a 360°-view of the multimodal supply chain.

As we look towards the future, we’re proud to offer Jump Start 2021 as a virtual event complimentary for attendees, so that more of our peers from around the industry can hear from experts on the most pressing issues and trends in the supply chain arena,” said SMC³ President and CEO Andrew Slusher. “SMC³ is committed to providing unrivaled data, technology and education services to the transportation community.
