Conference Countdown

The legal and regulatory red tape for 3PLs big and small can seem daunting, it’s critical that you have the knowledge to protect yourself and your business. To keep you at the top of your game, we’ve designed a five-session Legal Track covering a range of topics, including trade tariffs, covenants, claims, and more that will be moderated by some of the best legal minds in the 3PL industry.

Fear of Being Audited
Saturday, April 13; 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
3PLs rely on contracts to protect their bottom lines and provide clarity in business relationships with customers and carriers every day. Contracting also plays a critical role in ensuring that workers and contractors are properly classified, identified and compensated. Clear contractual relationships with owner-operators and independent drivers, independent sales representatives, and other third parties you work with every day ensure clear liability in the event of audits from states and the U.S. Department of Labor. This panel will discuss elements and considerations for putting the right protection in place.

Defending the Claim
Saturday, April 13; 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM
Would you know what to expect if you were required to attend a mediation to resolve an insurance claim? At this session, TIA will host a mock mediation held in the context of a lawsuit seeking damages for a catastrophic injury arising from a trucking accident. Different vantage points of the interests involved will be presented: the injured plaintiff, the 3PL, and the 3PL’s liability insurer.

You’ll learn applicable law concerning the plaintiff's burden of proof, what is expected on the part of the 3PL in terms of carrier vetting, and much more. You don’t want to miss this engaging and informative session.
