ITS Logistics’ CEO Scott Pruneau will share his perspective on the advantages of becoming an asset smart logistics provider at JOC Inland 2023 in Chicago. He will be joined by Craig Pettit, Executive Director, International Logistics and Trade Compliance of Bridgestone Americas, and Mike Hatfield, Senior Manager, Global Logistics of Berlin Packaging as panelists in the “Getting Asset Smart: Evaluating the Changing Landscape of Moving Freight” session on Wed., Sept. 27, from 9:45 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. CST.
As CEO of one of the fastest-growing logistics companies in the United States, the panel will explore how the evolution of supply chains has created a need for strategic providers to blur the historic lines between asset and non-asset based services. ITS believes that the best solutions are situation-specific and deliver stability and consistency as well as flexibility and scalability. These solutions often require a mix of many different types of assets orchestrated across multiple geographies creating an ‘asset smart’ ecosystem.
“Over the course of 30 years in our industry I’ve had the opportunity to work with some very innovative organizations and supply chain leaders. This experience has shaped my viewpoint of how providers have and can continue to evolve to meet today’s supply chain challenges,” said Pruneau. “I’m looking forward to sharing the stage with a few of our instrumental customers, who I think are leading the way with their approach to ‘asset smart’.”
