Chad Hughes, founder and president of ResQ Track & Trace, has accepted a speaking engagement at the forthcoming TransLog 2009 conference in Hamilton this June 17-18, targeting professionals in the supply chain, transportation and logistics industries.

Other speakers include Paul Bates, Dean, Michael DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University; Raymond W. Johnston, President, Chamber of Marine Commerce; Leslie Woo, General Manager, Policy and Planning, Metrolinx; and James Perttula, Manager, Goods Movement Policy, Ministry of Transportation.

According to Scott, the inaugural conference offers an opportunity to share knowledge, perspectives and innovation with colleagues and to learn about the latest developments in transportation research and practice in addressing critical transportation and logistics issues. TransLog 2009 will provide many opportunities for interaction with speakers and other attendees, including speaker presentations, panel session, poster sessions and breakout sessions.

He will deliver a 20 minute presentation and answer questions from attendees afterward. “Long gone are the days of CB radios delivering critical messages to dispatchers and head offices,” says Hughes. “Valuable assets today, whether people, vehicles or entire fleets in the air, on water or on land, and in fact goods in transit, are being tracked very efficiently and effectively by gps-enabled systems.”
