When the Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) stages its annual conference in Chicago April 27 – 30, 2014, seaport infrastructure will be top of mind, say organizers.

“U.S. Port Update: Investing in the Future” will feature a panel of three industry leaders from the East Coast, Gulf, and West Coast discussing their relative challenges and opportunities.

The current line-up includes:

* Tim Van Wormer, Marine Planning and Development Manager for the Port of Portland

*Russell Held, Director of Economic Development, The Port of Virginia

* Reggie Gray, President of the Houston Intercontinental Chamber of Commerce

Logistics Management’s executive editor, Patrick Burnson, moderates the hour-long session, and will follow up with a post-conference report.
