    National Transportation Week -

    Celebrating the Resiliency of the Supply Chain

    In honor of National Transportation Week in May The Traffic Club of Philadelphia and PANAPICS, CSCMP and Lehigh Valley Traffic Club are having a JOINT Virtual meeting on Zoom to celebrate this event. In 1962 Congress established this week in May to honor and promote the interests of the transportation industry for the benefit of the national welfare throughout all communities. National Defense Transportation Day, which occurs annually on the third Friday of May, remembers the contributions of people working in the United States' transport industry. It is part of National Transportation Week. Careers in the transport industry contribute $565 billion to US GDP each year. We are thankful to all of the transportation and logistics 'essential workers' who have heroically kept the economy going during this pandemic. You are invited to join both organizations to celebrate this event.

    Featuring speakers working within industries that truly supported pandemic life (grocery, pharmaceuticals, transportation etc) and discussing how some businesses pivoted to create new supply chains and / or made permanent changes to their business model as a result of COVID 19. NO SLIDES!
