REQUEST FROM AgTC FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION

To: Bill May
Subject: TEU’s for AgTC

Dear Bill,

In preparation for the upcoming Annual Conference, we are trying to assemble a total number of TEU’s shipped by all the AgTC members. Would you mind taking a second and replying to this message with your number? Just an estimate of what you ship over a typical 12 month period. We will aggregate these into one number that covers the entire membership, so no need to worry that your number will be released.

Many thanks!

Regards,
Peter
