Benjamin Gordon Recap of the 2023 BGSA Supply Chain Conference

Cambridge Capital Managing Partner Benjamin Gordon discusses supply chain innovation, the state of the industry and other BGSA Supply Chain Conference highlights

What Industry Leaders Are Saying…

“BGSA is always a great way to kickoff a new year with high energy presentations but also a relaxed atmosphere to network with key players across the supply chain industry.”

Darren HawkinsPresident & CEO, YELLOW

“The offline unplanned exchanges were as always extremely beneficial and will lead to expanded business opportunities for our logistics team. The presentations were mind expanding and all very worthwhile.”

Rick MurrellCEO, Saltchuk Logistics

“What a pleasure to be surrounded by so many great leaders in the supply chain and logistics space. I made many connections with colleagues, competitors and future partners and look forward to the possibilities those will bring. Everything about the event was first class and I look forward to next year.”

Laura RitcheyCOO, Radial, a bpost company

“I cannot express how valuable the conference was for PLS. While I’m only three months into my role, your conference added just under $2B on a revenue basis, and 11 vetted firms to our pipeline. We cannot think of another event where we could quantify such a return.”

Mark KummerSVP Corporate Development, PLS

“BGSA is the gold standard in providing content that defines the future of supply chain management.”

John BurkeCEO, Armada

“I was extremely impressed with the Supply Chain executive representation at the conference that allowed for networking and candid conversations.”

Mike HoniousCEO Americas, Geodis

“BGSA assembles several of the most interesting decision makers in our business in an informal and relaxed setting. This provides great networking and educational opportunities for attendees.”

Mark HolifieldPresident, Lasership

“There is not a better way to start the conference season than attending BGSA. The conference is a terrific meeting point of the supply chain leaders, thinkers and innovators that drive the industry today, and delivers terrific, relevant content through panels, speakers and receptions.”

Frank McGuiganCEO, Transplace

“The sessions, conversations and networking were superb with every detail well thought out and planned. You have a great team that cares and it shows.”

Guy BlochCEO, Bringg

“An understated value of the BGSA event its size.  It’s big enough to make valuable new connections, yet intimate enough for reuniting with old friends.  Whether through content or conversations, I always carry fresh insights back to our business.”

Mark CabreraCEO, Saddle Creek Logistics Services

From my perspective, the best part about the BGSA Conference is that it provides a platform for more junior (up and coming) Founders/CEO’s to connect with Founders/CEO’s of the largest companies in transportation/logistics. I met the majority of my industry mentors and friends for the first time @BGSA or strengthened an existing relationship during the conference. Also, when you put a CEO on stage, you significantly enhance their status in the industry.

Robert NathanFounder, Value Chain Ventures

“BGSA is an excellent opportunity to meet with different aspects of the Logistics business. From the latest technology, updates on deal-making and catching up with asset/asset light transportation executives. The Breakers is a beautiful location with the right atmosphere to create opportunities. The location, though, is only as good as the people who are attending and BGSA makes that happen!”

Craig MygattCEO, Sealand Americas Division

“There is no other conference I’m aware of that I’m able to get completely updated on trends with Technology, network with Industry CEOs and professionals, connect with potential or past investors, get updates on our business climate and to top it all off, enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Breakers!! Great job BGSA Team!”
