CARY, N.C., October 20, 2022 – MercuryGate® International, Inc., (MercuryGate) the largest dedicated transportation and logistics management solutions provider, today announced its Velocity 2022 conference agenda featuring industry-leading speakers, customer-driven, innovation-focused presentations and major sponsors of the event. Held live for the first time in three years, Velocity 2022 is November 7-9, at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“We know that a modern transportation management system (TMS) is much more than a tool for the administration of freight transactions, it is the lifeblood of a supply chain lifecycle,” said MercuryGate President and CEO Joe Juliano. “We developed our Velocity 2022 user conference agenda with an eye toward the expansion of MercuryGate’s next generation of transportation management capabilities. Technology that was once viewed as merely a foundational layer is giving way to intelligence-driven solution suites that detect exceptions and identify optimization opportunities throughout a shipment’s lifecycle. The world is moving beyond the automation world – to the information realm – and so is MercuryGate.”
MercuryGate is one of the world’s most widely used transportation and logistics solutions – annually supporting more than one billion logins, 1.8 million deployments and 100 million shipments for many of the world’s largest brands.
Velocity 2022 will feature keynotes from thought leaders, industry analysts, subject matter experts including MercuryGate’s own roster of leading experts from its leadership and technical teams. Speakers will address trends and issues impacting the transportation and logistics industry and provide insights on innovation and capabilities available today and those to come that address industry’s most pressing needs.
Record-setting attendance is expected at the live event as hundreds of customers and partners representing shippers, logistics service providers and 3PLs will be on hand to share success stories and network with peers. The conference lineup will also include content and informational kiosks from major sponsors Amazon Freight, Surge Transportation and SMC3. More than a dozen additional event sponsors include leading digital freight providers, 3PLs, logistics service providers and industry consultants.
