2019 Conference Educates And Celebrates Drivers
COPPELL, TEXAS (April 29, 2019) Daryl Flood Relocation & Logistics hosted the 21st Annual IC Conference at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel on Saturday, February 23, in Fort Worth, Texas. The conference brings together the Daryl Flood Relocation & Logistics team of van operators from all over the country to learn about trends and important updates within the industry.
“Our IC Conference is one of the most important things we do at Daryl Flood Relocation & Logistics, and this year was no different,” said Jeff Talbot, Senior Vice President of Operations. “Our objectives have remained the same: Camaraderie – provide an opportunity for our drivers and their spouses to get to know each other and share each other’s experience; Education – provide information on industry changes relevant to our business; Celebrate the Wins – recognize the achievements of the ‘Best of the Best!’ We value the work our folks do in being ‘dependable’ to our customers and each other. We wouldn’t be successful without our drivers!”
This year’s “Just One Thing” themed conference included an introductory message from President and CEO Daryl R. Flood, as well as sessions on sales; safety and insurance; shipment processing; Altair Global performance; UniGroup corporate updates, including the rollout of a new small shipment program, SnapMoves; and proprietary fleet technology, Flex and Stride. Daryl Flood Relocation & Logistics welcomed guest speakers Patrick Keery, Vice President, Move Management at Altair Global; and Collin McNamara, Producer Coordinator at TrueNorth Companies. From the UniGroup corporate office in St. Louis, Missouri, esteemed guest speakers also included Marc Rogers, President and CEO; Scott Kluesner, Executive Vice President Operations; and Jim Rockwell, Director Operations Support.
