Let’s Talk Transportation: Supply Chain, Chain of Custody, Logistics in the Cannabis Industry

Session Abstract

In the cannabis industry, understanding which transportation service you should choose is a daunting task. Many people in the industry are not familiar with all of their shipping options. Who do I call to find a reliable customs broker? How much should it cost? What about transit from China- how does that work? For samples- how do I get the best price? Who should I use- DHL, UPS or someone else? If you want to start your own delivery service, what do you need to do? What are the important components of starting your own delivery service? What are the skills necessary? what you must absolutely have (insurance, technology, merchant processing, and most of all, sales.)

And then of course there is the issue of trucking. How do you file a claim if your goods are damaged? In what instance would you use a same day courier? My presentation will answer all of these questions. Leaving the presentation, audience members will be armed with everything they need to know about saving money during the transportation process within the cannabis space.

I will also briefly touch intra-state delivery of flower and product.
