Paxton Presenter Jim Mikel Addressing the Meeting
Jim Mikel represented Paxton International at the Illinois Exports Conference: Getting Ready for Cross-Border Expansion, on April 30th in Chicago, IL.
The annual conference, put on by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, was attended by representatives from businesses and start-ups throughout the region with an interest in exporting their products abroad.
Presentations and panel discussions covered such topics as: international shipping, freight forwarding and taxation. For many of the attendees this was their first foray into the world of international shipping. Jim was joined on the panel by other experts including Cristina Falcone, of UPS Canada, who delivered the keynote presentation.
Paxton enjoys attending these types of events and using our shipping knowledge, developed from over a century in the logistics industry, to educate others on important issues affecting the international transportation industry. These events also allow Paxton to gauge what those in other industries find important or challenging about international logistics.
