How Shippers and Carriers Can Make Their Networks Safer

Reduce risk across your business by ensuring the shippers, carriers, and brokers you work with consistently meet compliance standards. In this presentation, Kristen Forecki, VP of Operations at Convoy, will cover how data and technology can help you select safer transportation partners and automate ongoing compliance checks.

She’ll cover how to focus on and assign resources within your company to innovate in the risk management space. Learn how to create a program that can handle massive volume, do near real-time compliance checks, and remove the possibility of human error. The end result: less legal and financial risk for your business, more time and resources to do meaningful work, and better service results.
