In January of 2017,
Roberts & Associates was proud to serve as sponsor of the Florida Messenger Association’s
Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida. The FMA has been
serving the interests of couriers, messengers, last mile delivery companies,
warehousemen, and distributors in Florida for nearly thirty years. Its
mission is to improve and advance the common business interests of messengers,
couriers, and related transportation service providers in the State of
Florida for the benefit of the public in need of such services.
David Smith attended the conference on behalf of the firm and was glad to have the
opportunity to meet with this sector of the industry and to hear their concerns.
In addition to participating in various activities and roundtables, Mr.
Smith was able to meet one-on-one with FMA members at the Roberts &
Associates booth to discuss specific concerns in the industry, such as
maintaining the independent contractor model for drivers, and generally
limiting liability as a small operator beholden to larger forwarders and
providers. “For me, the real benefit of attending conferences is
the opportunity to hear, directly from industry leaders, what their biggest
concerns are," said Attorney David W. Smith, "and what keeps
them up at night.”
Attendance at conferences such as this helps
the firm stay abreast of the developments at all levels of the industry from international
shipping, to last mile delivery, and everything in between in order to
be well prepared to represent clients in all facets and at all levels
of the cargo transportation sector.
