With diesel prices back above $4 per gallon, carriers are increasingly looking for new ways to control costs. With more alternative-fuel engine options and a developing infrastructure and distribution network, now may be the time to look at the merits of new fuel sources. At the 2012 CCJ Spring Symposium, Scott Perry, Vice President of Supply Management, Fleet Management Solutions, Ryder System, Inc., will lead the Equipment Breakout Session and help fleets determine when is the right time to explore alternative fuels.
The 2012 CCJ Spring Symposium features a full lineup of compelling keynote speakers, industry experts and fleet and shipper executives. Keynote speakers include:
Ari Fleischer, CNN political analyst and former White House press secretary;
Anne Ferro, Administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration; and
First Sergeant Matt Eversmann, American hero and soldier during “Black Hawk Down” mission in Somalia.
In addition, the symposium will have an economic outlook panel, led by Randall-Reilly’s Avery Vise, with economists William Strauss, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and Avondale Partners’ Kristine Kubacki.
An executive panel of shippers and carriers will discuss the dynamics at work between the two groups and ways to improve the shipper-carrier relationship. Panelists for the session include:
Amy Mielke, carrier relations leader for Owens Corning;
Brent Nussbaum, CEO, Nussbaum Transportation Services;
