Camelot attending and blogging from NCBFAA Conference

Next week, the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America holds their annual conference.  The premier industry trade event, it brings together industry participants from around the USA to meet and listen to speakers from both the government and private sector cover the most pressing topics facing the industry, both our side as the providers of services and for our clients, importers and exporters.

The agenda for the conference is online (see the link in the previous paragraph) and Scott and Tom Case will both be in attendance.  We are planning to have daily postings on the topics which were covered at the event, as well as direct commentary from presenters and attendees.  At this meeting, we are also planning to have discussions with our software provider, GMS International, about their internal software package that we use, and the external, customer-facing, industry-leading package G-TRAC, that our clients see and use.

If there are any topics which are of interest to you and you have questions that you’d like answered either privately or as part of our blogging series, please e-mail Scott directly and he will do his best to get them answered.
