Registration opens today, November 1, for the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association's (SC&RA) Specialized Transportation Symposium, which takes place next year from February 19-22 in Houston, Texas.
The event will feature speakers from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, with discussions focusing on the shared challenges of oversize/overweight (OS/OW) transport.
This year, the symposium will also include a day of interactive educational sessions on the topics of safety and permits, which the SC&RA says will encourage best practice and the practical application of solutions to everyday issues.
The opening session of the event will see global experts - including executives from Mammoet, the New Zealand Heavy Haulage Association, Friderici Spécial and Daco Heavy Lift - share a brief snapshot of the specialised transport market in Europe, Asia, Central America and Oceania.
Other sessions will focus on how to become a better carrier, the new NAFTA agreement and border-crossing challenges, as well as working together on global safety standards in the heavy lift and specialised transport industry.
