Metro Delivery has been a member of the ECA since 2006-it’s a national organization that “fosters business relationships through innovative networking between local/regional carriers and national shippers or vendors in the transportation industry, while also providing its members continuing education on transportation industry issues.”
This year we once again sent our Business Development and Customer Service Managers to the 2012 ECA Marketplace Event in Chicago, for 3 whirlwind days of:
* Networking with other Carriers & Vendors from across the USA
* Dynamic speed interviews with Shippers; potential clients looking for regional Carriers like Metro Delivery
* Transportation education & information sessions & conversations
* And incidentally, an amazing array of carnivorous choices provided by the stockyards of Chicago & the excellent kitchen at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, along with other fortifying refreshments, Roulette and Blackjack tables for a charitable cause, and a jazz band. See? Now it sounds fun, doesn’t it?
It was nice to have the conference close to home, in Chicago; it’s a great town, and just a 3.5 hour drive from our home base, which means we don’t have to fly but can stick to the surface transportation we’re most familiar with.
Thanks for having us, ECA! See you next year!
