Shapiro, a 99-year-old logistics leader, will be represented by Jane Taeger, Director of Compliance, at the Textile Bag & Packaging Association’s Annual Fall Meeting in New York City to discuss the latest trends in regulatory compliance and global logistics

Shapiro, a 99-year-old leader in regulatory compliance and global transportation, will be the featured speaker at the Textile Bag & Packaging Association’s (TBPA) Fall Meeting at the Westin Grand Central in New York City on October 28, 2014.  Jane Taeger, Shapiro’s Director of Compliance, will present the session titled, “From Rates to Regs: A Snapshot of the Logistics Industry.”

The presentation, set to run from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., will provide an overview of the logistics industry as it affects importers, specifically in the textile and packaging industry.  Taeger will review a broad spectrum of supply chain and regulatory compliance topics, including the Los Angeles/Long Beach port delays, a comparative analysis between a non-vessel operating (NVO) and a beneficial cargo owner (BCO), the Panama Canal expansion, C-TPAT certification, and various compliance program updates.

A licensed broker since 1987, Taeger joined Shapiro as the Director of Compliance in 2005 and is responsible for the company’s import and export regulatory compliance and its professional consulting services division.  Shapiro’s Director of Commercial Development, Colin Chapman, will also be in attendance to support the discussion.

“With 99 years of experience, Shapiro is so pleased to be able to contribute to the supply chain and regulatory conversation with the textile community,” says Taeger.  “In the ever-changing logistics landscape, staying informed and educated in regulatory compliance and the freight market gives importers the power to mitigate potential dangers to their supply chains.”
