IAM Boat Event Hosted by Schumacher Cargo - October 2015
*For pictures from the event, visit our Gallery!
Another year has passed and we have just returned from the annual IAM meeting in San Diego and it was a huge success on many levels.
This is our time every year when we get to meet and greet our esteemed colleagues and agents from around the world.
Our discussion touches on what we did last year, and how we plan to do it bigger and better the following year.
Schumacher Cargo was in full attendance. We had all our main household goods people conducting meetings every day with our origin agents from overseas.
The event took place at the Hyatt Convention Center in downtown San Diego. The weather was wonderful and the atmosphere was great.
The event started on Sunday afternoon with a welcome reception from the IAM president, as people arrived from all across the globe to be part of this crucial gathering of the international moving industry's biggest players.
On Monday evening, seeing as we were hosting many of our agents on our home turf in Southern California, we invited all our business clients to join us aboard a yacht and enjoy a night of music and social entertainment on the calm and serene waters in San Diego Harbor.
We enjoyed great food, fine wine and creative conversation in an atmosphere that was truly enjoyed by all.
We would like to thank all our guests for contributing to such a successful evening and night.
Thank you as always for your continued support in business and friendship from the entire team at Schumacher Cargo!

Schumacher Secure uses "shipping magic" to deliver Barbados Sol Rally car before deadline
Schumacher Secure, a subsidiary of Schumacher Cargo Logistics, was selected as the car shipping company of choice for the Sol Rally Barbados.
This 2013 Sol Rally Barbados World Rally which featured competitors from 11 nations and 30 international entries are the largest annual motor sport event, celebrating its 50th anniversary just a few years ago.
One of the main challenges at this year's event was encountered by business man Michael O'Leary, who decided to enter his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X in the Barbados Rally. Initially, the car was supposed to be shipped directly from New York to Barbados. Just a couple of days before the car shipping date, the transit time to Barbados changed. This left everyone wondering if the car would arrive in time for the rally. The Sol RB Rally employees started to look for last-minute options as soon as they heard the news.
Warren Barnes, the VP of Schumacher Cargo Logistics, took on the challenge of making the car shipment possible, despite the short notice. Through hard work and determination, he found a transporter and made sure that the delivery was timely. The car arrived the Port of Palm Beach right in time for the great Sol Rally Barbados event.

Schumacher Cargo along with our UK partners "Delivered on Time" are the car shipping companies of choice for the Formula E car.
Formula E is a single-seat electric-powered race car. Formula E hopes to demonstrate that electric cars are a good alternative to gas-powered vehicles by having famous race car drivers drive them.
Schumacher Cargo participated in the Los Angeles Formula E car demonstration which took place in Los Angeles on April 23, 2013.
Participants in this event included Schumacher Cargo Logistics' vice president Warren Barnes, Formula E fans, and Mayor Villaraigosa.
Los Angeles has been selected as one of the cities across the world to feature open-wheel races for the electric cars, also known as Formula E. The plan is to host these races globally, starting with Los Angeles in 2014.
Currently, only Los Angeles and Miami are open to hosting electric car races in the U.S. Other cities are in Europe, Brazil, Argentina, and Malaysia.
Villaraigosa explained that the Los Angeles race is paid in full by the investors of the Formula E car, so the city does not have any expenses.
Schumacher Cargo Logistics delivered the Formula E car to the Hollywood Sign on time and is looking forward to the future Formula E car events.

Statement by FMCS Director George H. Cohen on United States Maritime Alliance and International Longshoremen's Association Labor Negotiations
WASHINGTON, D.C. — I am pleased to announce that at the close of today's productive negotiation session, in which progress was made on several important subjects, the parties have agreed to extend the collective bargaining agreement due to expire on September 30, 2012 for a ninety (90) day period, i.e. through December 29, 2012. In taking this significant step, the parties emphasized that they are doing so "for the good of the country" to avoid any interruption in interstate commerce.
This extension will provide the parties an opportunity to focus on the outstanding core issues in a deliberate manner apart from the pressure of an immediate deadline. The negotiations on the Master Agreement will be conducted during the same time frame as negotiations for local agreements. The negotiations will continue under the auspices of the FMCS. Due to the sensitive nature of these high profile negotiations, we will have no further comment on the schedule for the negotiations, their location, or the substance of what takes place during those negotiations.
