“We are thrilled to have Mr. Maffei join our meeting and share with our executive membership how the FMC is managing challenges throughout the supply chain crisis,” said Chris Gardner, senior vice president, AASA, and executive lead of the SCO Forum. “We’ve seen innovation and problem-solving on a large scale throughout the crisis, allowing the aftermarket to continue to grow despite the headwinds. Hearing from the chairman of the FMC will allow attendees front-row access to one of the most important elements of a successful supply chain strategy. This is a terrific opportunity.” 

The FMC is an independent commission that regulates the commercial aspects of international ocean shipping coming into and going out of the United States. AASA’s SCO Forum is a peer-to-peer networking group focused on learning about and discussing the challenges facing suppliers in procuring raw materials and components, in-bound and out-bound movement of goods, logistics, shipping, labor, automated warehousing, packaging, etc. 

Registration for the Nov. 14 event is open to SCO Forum members, AASA and MEMA members, and non-members.
