Creating Frictionless Supply Chains

The supply chain responsible for delivering CPG products to every American home is incredibly complex, made up of thousands of processes and decisions that are invisible to consumers but essential to getting them the things they rely on every day.

Trading Partner Alliance

TPA is a joint industry affairs-industry relations leadership group that was formed by the Consumer Brands Association and the Food Marketing Institute in January 2009. It exists to develop a shared retailer-manufacturer agenda on supply chain efficiency issues, the application of information technology, the adoption of environmentally friendly business practices and other issues.

When Well-Intended Regulation Fails

While taking breaks and hours limits are important parts of trucking safety, the rigid mandates enforcing them can actually reduce it. The Consumer Brands Association backs common-sense changes to the federal government’s “hours of service” rules that would give truck drivers greater flexibility, address oversights in the current rules and make U.S. roads safer for everyone.
