Fall Seminar Schedule is Announced

The Transportation & Logistics Council, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring three extremely informative, full-day seminars this Fall on freight claims, freight contracting and transportation law. It’s your choice – take all three or choose one or two of the following seminars.

Freight Claims in Plain English, which will be presented by Gerard F. Smith, Esq., is based on the newly published 4th Edition of Freight Claims in Plain English authored by George Carl Pezold and William J. Augello. This is a “soup to nuts” seminar covering a wide range of issues and topics related to freight claims and freight claim recovery. This course is highly recommended for both beginners in the field of freight claims as well as experienced claims professionals.

Contracting for Transportation & Logistics Services, which will be presented by Raymond A. Selvaggio, Esq., is an intensive program on both the practical and legal aspects of contracting for logistics services and supply chain solutions. Both Purchasers (shippers) and Providers (brokers and carriers) of transportation and logistics services will learn the “do’s” and “don’ts” of contracting. Plus attendees will have a unique opportunity to discuss their specific contracting problems and issues with a knowledgeable transportation attorney.

Transportation, Logistics and the Law, based on the text by William (“Bill”) Augello, will be presented by Brent Wm. Primus, Esq. This unique one-day course is designed to provide a basic working knowledge of the laws and regulations affecting the supply chain and governing the relationships between the parties -- shippers, carriers, and intermediaries. Topics include the critical issues which transportation professionals and attorneys are confronted with in their day-to-day activities: vicarious liability for highway accidents and deaths, liability for freight charges and exposure to double payment and elimination of cargo liability insurance. The text provides vital information you need for minimizing risks and protecting revenues for your organization AND for your own individual professional growth.
