On September 27, 2018 R&R Realty engaged Rob to speak at its annual corporate education day in W. Des Moines, Iowa. Rob delivered “From Shanghai to Your Shelf: Logistics and Supply Chain in the 21st Century”. The program was delivered to its premier brokers by R&R at its corporate headquarters. Rob discussed the 5 intermodals, the changes with the Suez and Panama Canals, the advantages and disadvantages of east coast ports, rail, air and trucking systems, 3PLs and logistic hubs. Most importantly he shared the mathematical regression models that internal real estate departments engage to develop an industrial real estate decision on site and facility options in the marketplace.
Rob again delivered “From Shanghai to Your Shelf” on June 8, 2016 for the Houston Association of Realtors and the SIOR Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter. The Port of Houston sponsored this event and over 55 attendees were presents. Rob also toured the Houston Port on a private presentation made to him in preparation for this presentation. His 3 hour CE approved program was delivered at the Briar Club in Houston (see photo).
