August 14, 2019

August 14, 2019 (Dallas, TX) – Transplace, a leading provider of transportation management services and logistics technology solutions, today announced the details of its annual Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) Summit, being held at the 21C Museum Hotel in Bentonville, Arkansas, August 21-22, 2019. Transplace’s CPG Summit is a meeting place for leading CPG businesses and Transplace leadership to share knowledge, network, collaborate and secure ideas for innovation opportunities. The event promises to provide unique insights, practical ideas, inspirational stories and collaborative solutions for all that attend. This year, Transplace is proud to announce that its speakers include Arthur Valdez, EVP, chief supply chain & logistics officer at Target and Scott Palagyi, senior director of logistics, North America supply chain at Reckitt Benckiser, among others.

As a leading provider of logistics management solutions and services to the CPG industry, Transplace helps companies successfully navigate the compounding challenges facing the industry and find opportunities to simplify and drive efficiencies in their supply chain. The CPG Summit brings together these leading industry shippers and supply chain executives to share ideas and best practices, discuss ever-changing retailer requirements and opportunities, and plan activities that drive value and success, all while maintaining the essential mission of achieving global supply chain excellence.

Transplace CEO Frank McGuigan said, “CPG companies today face formidable strategic and operational challenges. Providing a high, consistent level of service delivery to a growing number of customers and channels is imperative to drive growth. Many CPG companies are finding that the tried-and-true tactics for reliable margins and growth are no longer working. Indeed, logistical obstacles have taken a measurable toll on some CPG companies’ performance in terms of service levels, costs, and inventory. The CPG Summit will provide attendees invaluable opportunities to learn about how to navigate the day-to-day transportation challenges and learn ways to manage costs and outperform the competition.”
