FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The Small Business in Transportation Coalition is offering industry stakeholders fun in the sun and on the water in what the coalition has dubbed the “Industry at Sea” event in the form of a conference and cruise.

The conference/cruise will set sail Sept. 12 from Port Canaveral, Florida, and returns Sept. 15. Ports of call include CocoCay, Bahamas, and Nassau, Bahamas.

Intended as an event to bring together “property broker, agent, forwarder, shipper, carrier, owner-operator and industry supplier colleagues for a three-night networking cruise,” according to the event website, attendance comes with no registration fee for SBTC dues-paying members ($25 annually), only the cost of the cruise itself.

Founded by James Lamb, president of Fort Lauderdale-based, Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents (AIPBA) the SBTC is a “network of transportation professionals and industry suppliers who seek to promote and protect the small business players in the transportation industry.”

The “Industry at Sea” event seeks to bring those involved within the brokerage and trucking industry supply chain, as well as truck drivers and owner-operators, to meet and network together in order to build a more transparent and colleague relationship, Lamb said.

Topics for event programs include, but are not limited to, partnering with factors, load-board marketplace innovation, broker bonding and insurance options and more.
