Blog Post: Transervice & IFDA Roll into the Capital City

On October 16th and 17th, Transervice Logistics Inc. took to the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Oxon Hill, MD. to exhibit, talk logistics, address your fleet management needs and network with our team! The event was the Distribution Solutions Conference (DSC) hosted by the International Foodservice Distributors Association (#IFDA), Transervice currently stands as a 10 year + exhibitor and is not stopping, as we are already booked for 2018. The DSC is the nation’s largest stage for foodservice distribution innovation. The event brings together the best and brightest in the industry to experience the latest products and services supporting distribution center and transportation operations. IFDA has greatly expanded the expo over years past to nearly 40,000 square feet. This was the largest expo hall in the history of the DSC. The event had great attendance and featured some topnotch keynote speakers; highlighted by football player, coach and analyst Herman Edwards.

“Our goal is to deliver an event that exceeds expectations and provides insights for people who are focused on the operations side of foodservice distribution,” said Mark Allen, President, and CEO of IFDA. “The DSC provides a platform for types of distributors in the industry to find the connections and resources they need to improve the effectiveness of their operations, explore the latest trends, and ultimately better serve their customers.”

Steve Kada (Director of Sales; Northeast) adds “Being at IFDA always provides an excellent opportunity to meet someone new-possibly our next client.”
Jim Lavery (Director of Sales, New England) noted “Being a provider to a number of foodservice companies, the discussions at the Transervice IFDA booth were both interactive and relevant.”
