    - by Transplace

    At Transplace’s 15th Annual Shipper Symposium, change management expert Marcelino Sánchez shared some excellent insight into cultural inertia, organizational gravity and strategies for effective implementation and sustainable change. He asked a number of critical questions for today’s organizations that are trying to implement change, including: What’s wrong with the current paradigm? What can we do about it to implement and sustain effective change? For Transplace, that question also extends to: how can we help our customers integrate change into their organization? Here are some of the key points Sánchez shared with the audience.

    Shipper Symposium Series Webinar: Ocean Carrier Alliances – What You Need to Know

    - by Transplace

    What used to be four primary ocean carrier alliances has now transformed into three different ocean carrier alliances, which kicked off services on April 1. The new alliances represent 77% of global container capacity and 96% of all East-West trades’ container capacity. While the changing atmosphere of new ocean carrier alliances for containerized cargo isn’t something new, thanks to a tumultuous last few years – these ocean carriers reshuffled partnerships in hopes of achieving better financial performance.

    Highlights of Shipper Symposium 2016: Part 1

    - by Transplace

    We kicked off the 14th annual Shipper Symposium in sunny San Antonio this week and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring together industry luminaries, keynote speakers, partners, carriers and customers!

    Tom Sanderson, CEO of Transplace, officially welcomed attendees and introduced the evening’s keynote speaker, Jim Morris, a former MLB baseball player and the subject of the movie The Rookie. Focusing on the importance of choices, Morris said: “You make up your own mind about what you want to be and what you want to do. It’s the choices that we make that make us who we are.” Morris shared with the audience how learning to follow his dreams, telling the truth no matter what and “walking the walk” has helped him throughout his life, and drove him to finally realize his dream of pitching in the major leagues. His final takeaway for attendees was simple: “If you don’t chase your own dreams, that’s your fault.”
