Coyote to Launch New Industry Forum with Global Digital Summit

New initiatives bring global experts together to facilitate innovation and deliver powerful resources and insights to members of the supply chain

Chicago — September 9, 2020 —  Today, Coyote Logistics, a leading global third-party logistics (3PL) provider, is excited to announce the Coyote Collective, an industry forum that seeks to bring together experts from around the world to collaboratively solve the most complex supply chain challenges and build the supply chain of the future. It will officially launch during the company’s first-ever free digital summit, taking place on September 30 and October 1, 2020.    

Coyote understands that to thrive in the supply chain industry, which is becoming increasingly demanding and complex, its members rely on the unique ideas and perspectives of experts from around the world. The Coyote Collective was designed to be an evergreen forum for industry specialists and organizations to discuss pertinent supply chain challenges and collaborate to facilitate innovation, pilot advanced programs and deliver a wide variety of resources, including webinars, executive insights, original research studies, industry analyses, and other thought leadership content.  

“Coyote believes the best insights are garnered through collaboration, which is why we’re thrilled to launch this important initiative that will pave the way for new innovations and solutions,” said Jonathan Sisler, CEO at Coyote. “The Coyote Collective is a unique opportunity for us to bring some of the top experts in our field together to support the evolving needs of our network of shippers and carriers. It exemplifies our customer-centric approach and continued commitment to moving the industry forward.”                                                     

Coyote is also proud to announce the Coyote Logistics Digital Summit, which will showcase the forum’s newly released content. The free two-day immersive virtual experience will connect supply chain and logistics professionals with Coyote and UPS leadership, industry experts, educators, and third-party research firms, including Consumer Brands Association, Accenture, Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), Armstrong & Associates, and shippers and carriers from various specialties and verticals. The Digital Summit is open to anyone looking to advance their knowledge of the most critical and relevant supply chain topics. Everyone from entry-level professionals to seasoned executives and long-time owner-operators will find value in the sessions, which can be viewed live or on-demand.
