Transportation Leadership Journal
The transportation industry is fundamentally changing. The year 2020 will kick off a decade with new frontiers in data science, artificial intelligence, and optimization—all leading up to a shift in focus.
The name Mercury Group is derived from the Roman god Mercury, the patron god of commerce and communication. This name embodies the spirit of the group and encourages participants to discover better ways of working through idea sharing, up-to-date benchmarking information, and transparent collaboration.
The Mercury Group is an annual event hosted by Breakthrough that provides a platform for clients to make informed, data-driven decisions in their supply chain. Using network data, we advance thought leadership and cultivate deeper knowledge to bring new strategic choices to life. With a focus on collaboration, we encourage Mercury Group participants to share challenges they have overcome, and opportunities they have created, to facilitate deeper conversations for peer-based learning.
This event is where people can see what’s happening in the industry, understand how it will impact their networks, and create real strategies for their organization. In a world that is changing and accelerating as fast as it is now, this event allows us to take a take a step back, critically think about our strategies, and share best practices.
The Mercury Group is a great experience from both a social and intellectual standpoint. The event provides a great platform to network with fellow peers and industry experts to advance thought leadership. It’s one of the best conferences that I’ve had the opportunity to attend.
This was my first time at the conference, and I was surprised by how much I learned. The speakers were passionate and confident and the venue was ideal. The whole event was truly a class act!
I really liked the breakout sessions and found that engaging with my peers in a smaller setting was a valuable way to connect and participate in a discussion.
