Connections 2020 Update

Each summer, we look forward to welcoming customers to the Connections supply chain conference where attendees engage in meaningful networking, and hear from industry experts on emerging trends. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 global pandemic affects our ability to put on a safe conference this year.

Out of concern for the health of our attendees, sponsors, staff and service providers, SMC³ has made the decision to cancel Connections 2020 June 15-17 in Boston.

In making this assessment, we are following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and state and federal organizations. We did not come to this decision lightly, and we remain committed to advancing the industry through educational conferences that promote valuable networking, thought leadership and industry best practices.

During this crisis, SMC³ is up and running without interruption, and we remain dedicated to hosting unrivaled networking and educational supply chain conferences as soon as we have greater confidence of providing a safer environment for everyone.

Please mark your calendar for Jump Start 2021 January 25-27 in Atlanta. Jump Start is the definitive supply chain intelligence gathering of the new year, and is attended by 500+ carrier, shipper, 3PL and technology providers. Be sure to bookmark smc3jumpstart.com to stay up-to-date on all the details.

We are here to serve you during this challenging time, and look forward to seeing you at Jump Start 2021.

  • SMC³ COVID-19 Business Continuity Update
  • SMC³ has an unwavering commitment to the safety and health of its customers, business partners and employees. To both ensure the safety of the SMC³ community and that customers experience no interruption in service amid the evolving situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), SMC³ has successfully tested and validated its business continuity plan for the pandemic.

    All employees in both the Peachtree City and Louisville offices executed the plan last week, and operations continued as normal. Actions and practices taken over the past several years have helped us prepare for scenarios like this. Throughout the process, SMC³ has been refining and implementing new procedures. All SMC³ employees have access to remote connectivity and can field phone and email inquiries as usual.

    This situation continues to evolve quickly, and SMC³ will be monitoring it closely and will continue to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. SMC³ understands the current situation is challenging for stakeholders throughout the supply chain. With this strategy in place, along with the proven business continuity plan, SMC³ will continue to support its customers, providing uninterrupted LTL and truckload technology services for the wider transportation and supply chain industries.

    If you have any questions, please contact SMC³ Customer Support at customersupport@smc3.com or 800.845.8090.
