This webinar was hosted by TranzAct Technologies on July 20, 2022 in conjunction with the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and the National Industrial Transportation League (NITL). The webinar was moderated by TranzAct's Mike Regan with panelists:

• Karyn Booth, Partner and Chair of the Transportation Practice, Thompson Hine LLP
• Peter Tirschwell, VP of Maritime & Trade, IHS Markit
• Matt Schrap, CEO, Harbor Trucking Association

The webinar addressed how the enforcement of AB5 will have a tremendous impact on shippers, and assembled a panel of experts to explain how it will impact your supply chain. It also addressed the status of contact negotiations at the West Coast Ports between the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU).

Many of you may not be familiar with AB 5, but a lot of experts believe it may be one of the most significant issues for trucking in the past twenty plus years. This piece of legislation from California affects the Independent Contractor/Employer status. In short, it is a BIG DEAL!
