Back to Bangkok: GTM Attends EGLN Conference

Published On: September 30th, 2016

We’re off to the 2nd Annual Elite Global Logistics Network (EGLN) Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, to be held on October 2-5, 2016. As EGLN members and conference sponsors, we’re delighted to be returning this year.

EGLN is a highly-respected international network of elite-level logistics companies that offer uncompromising customer service. Our fellow EGLN members are here by invitation and because they’re proven leaders in efficiency and dependability. As of late 2016, EGLN has grown to include 196 members from 127 countries, employing 21,000 staff and generating $7 billion in annual revenue. It’s a partnership of equals working together to deliver peerless service across the globe.


Attending this year’s conference are Mark Brodie, GTM’s Founder, Managing Member and Co-Owner; Robert Gruschow, Managing Member at GTM and President of Deshler Group; Lisa Lunsford, CEO of GS3 Global, a valued GTM partner; Joe Field, GTM’s Senior Director of Operations, North America; and Brian Pagels, Import/Export Specialist at GTM.

As we arrive at the five-star Landmark Hotel, our team will be joining fellow EGLN members for various welcoming and social events, group activities and one-on-one meetings. These small, intimate meetings are our most important arena. During these discussions, we build and strengthen alliances with our valued international partners, new and old.

This year, we’re particularly focused on sharing our GTM Automotive Services offering. We’ve built a premium, global, door-to-door automotive product, which we offer to customers around the world. We’ve partnered with several hand-picked and highly valued international partners to deliver this service. We combine our best assets and capabilities, from customs clearance and special handling expertise, to our long-established air, ocean and trucking services, to offer a streamlined logistics experience for any automotive customer.

We’re based in Michigan, the cradle of the automotive industry, an industry we’ve served for decades. We’ve learned how to provide the flawless supply chain management that the international marketplace requires, and we excel at it. Our reach begins in Detroit, extends throughout the country, and arrives, through our auto partner alliances, anywhere our customers need us to be. It’s a unique service which we are excited to share with our fellow conference attendees this week.

We’re excited to be back in Thailand, meeting old friends and making new ones. Follow us right here on our blog, and on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for updates on our adventures at EGLN.
