DoD’s Contracting Initiative—How Much Trust is Too Much?

In light of USTC's and DoD's moving to outsource the DoD household goods moving process to a single contractor, it’s interesting that just last month, the DoJ and the FTC released a joint statement on their standard of review under the antitrust statutes of proposed transactions within the defense industry.

 
 
 

IAM Attends the Young Movers Conference (YMC) in Romania

IAM Staff Members Brian Limperopulos and Julia O’Connor attended the 2019 Young Movers Conference earlier this month. Held each year in a different European city, the YMC brings together the European moving industry for a program of education and networking.

With more than 200 attendees, the YMC proved to be a very effective venue for building relationships and contacts. IAM is looking forward to continuing its support of this valuable event when it is held next year in Dublin, Ireland.
