Organizers of Jacksonville Port Authority's (JAXPORT) biennial 'Logistics & Intermodal Conference' have released the list of panel topics for discussion at the upcoming 2015 conference.

The overall theme for 2015 is "Challenges Facing Shippers in South Atlantic Ports,” and the conference will feature five panel discussions sharing insights, solutions and successes. Panelists will be announced soon and will include senior executives from major ocean carriers, railroads, shippers and service providers.

JAXPORT’s conference is designed for senior level executives in logistics and transportation, offering a unique opportunity to network with industry leaders and hear speakers from around the country discussing topics of interest to decision makers. Panel topics are as follows:

Challenges of the Last Mile
This panel will explore challenges facing transportation service providers, including chassis availability and utilization, driver shortages and concerns about the final portion of infrastructure at ports. The panel will explain how companies can cut down on costs and keep business margins high.

South Atlantic Port Director Roundtable
A candid conversation with key port directors in the South Atlantic who will discuss how their respective ports are positively addressing common challenges such as infrastructure needs, limited funding, labor issues and shipper demands.

Emerging Complexities in the North American Auto Supply Chain
This panel will examine ways shippers can stay-up to date with Mexico’s ever-increasing auto manufacturing export business to the U.S. as North American near-shoring and inland transportation challenges are combining to change the supply chain equation for U.S. auto manufacturers.

Site Selection for Distribution Centers –
Communities throughout the Southeastern United States aggressively compete for major retailers to open distribution centers. Panelists will address key factors considered by major retailers when selecting a site for their facility.

Shippers’ Perspective on the Caribbean
Panelists will discuss what types of Caribbean business will emerge in the near term and what mainland shippers and carriers need to know in order to capitalize on the expanding opportunities in the region.
