About the GCCA Cold Chain Policy Forum
In 2022, GCCA is looking to expand its advocacy reach to other countries and regions of the world. One of the ways GCCA is planning to deliver new advocacy programming to members is through the newly rebranded Global Policy Forum to be held August 9-11, 2022 . The Global Policy Forum is envisioned as the premier policy event for businesses engaged in temperature-controlled logistics. As with previous Policy Forum events, it will feature education sessions and keynote presentations focused on rules, regulations, and legislation that directly impact the industry and provide the opportunity for engagement with key government officials.
Over the past few years, the Policy Forum has been held in-person in Washington, DC. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions and protocols that were previously in place that limited our in-person engagement opportunities at the time, we were forced to move the event to a virtual format for 2022. The virtual format will enable us to deliver a much broader program and reach a global audience. Committees that normally meet at the Policy Forum will also conduct their meetings virtually at times and dates yet to be determined. GCCA intends to return to an in-person event in the United States in 2023 as well as continuing to build on global advocacy program offerings .
The primary audience includes third-party transportation, warehousing, and logistics providers, design-build firms, food processors and manufacturers, retailers, and related industry associations. Like previous years, the focus on U.S. regulatory and legislative issues will continue. In addition, GCCA will offer programming to include policy updates from across the globe including Canada, Brazil, Latin America, and South Africa.
We are excited to truly provide a global perspective on the industry at this year’s forum and hope that you will join us on August 9-11.
