Introduction

Janet Nodar

Traffic and Logistics Manager, Bechtel

Featured Speaker

Andrew Young

Transport Assurance is a systematic process for ensuring the safe handling and transportation of critical equipment resulting in positive delivery outcomes and avoiding risk to cargo and scheduling. The overarching strategy for achieving transport assurance is engaging material and equipment suppliers early in the process to establish equipment characteristics and requirements for handling and transportation, and maintaining a consistent approach in qualifying, selecting, and managing logistics service providers. Bechtel Logistics, at corporate, global business unit, and project levels, is responsible for the phased activities of transport assurance relating to critical equipment. Andy Young, Bechtel’s traffic and logistics manager, will close out the 2020 JOC Breakbulk and Project Cargo Conference with a discussion about the evolution and application of Bechtel’s transport assurance process.
