Too Much or Not Enough?

TLA’s webinar series seeks to expand the association’s CLE offerings by providing timely information on issues of concern to transportation attorneys from the leaders in the field.  TLA members, non-members and non-attorneys are welcome to attend.

Too Much or Not Enough?  Competitive and Anti-Competitive Conduct and Regulation in the Post COVID Supply Chain Squeeze

In this timely and topical Webinar, the TLA’s Antitrust and Unfair Trade Committee will ‎discuss, analyze, and assess the wide range of competition law issues that are facing the ‎transportation and logistics sector today.  Doctrines often thought to be arcane are now at the ‎forefront of the Biden Administration’s economic policy.  A new Executive Order to increase ‎competition in the U.S. economy has targeted the logistics arena in multiple areas of policy and ‎regulatory enforcement, especially with respect to the supply chain crunch caused by surging ‎post-COVID demand; the new role of technological platforms in the provision of logistics ‎services; and the use of non-compete agreements.  Air transportation also is specifically ‎targeted, despite decades of deregulation and hands-off supervision.  Congress is also actively ‎exploring whether it needs to enact new legislation to ensure a more competitive transportation ‎sector, especially in light of foreign trade supply chain issues where U.S. shippers complain that ‎they cannot obtain access to essential transportation services and equipment.  ‎

This panel will explore the ramifications of these recent governmental initiatives and ‎edicts, coupled with global bottlenecks in the supply chain, and how they will impact ‎transportation practices, procedures, protocols and contracting across all modes, in such areas as ‎detention and demurrage, Shipping Act Reform, and the use of electronic platforms for ‎marketing and providing transportation services.  The panel will offer succinct assessments of ‎where things stand on competition legislation and regulation, forecast impacts and implications ‎down the road, and provide helpful tips on contracting and operational practices, to either work ‎with, or work through, the new post-COVID regulatory regime.  These issues will impact all our ‎practices, and we have some of the most knowledgeable transportation law experts in this ‎specialized field to tell us all about them.  You won’t want to miss it!‎
