“This was the most informative conference on transportation logistics I have been to in a long time. It brought together industry logistic managers, state officials, and trucking companies to collaborate toward a better understanding of the transportation industry and its unique challenges.”
- Rick McLaughlin, Alliance Shippers, Inc., Cleveland, OH

“… Congrats for aiming high and providing us all with a wonderful forum on new ideas and innovations. I got a lot out of it.”
- Libby Ogard, Prime Focus, LLC, DePere, WI

“I was undecided on what branch of operation management I wanted to pursue. After all the knowledge acquired I’m looking forward to specializing in logistics."
- Raquel Keller, student, Cleveland State University, Cleveland, OH

Freight forecasters are predicting dramatic growth in freight volumes. Yet our current freight network struggles to meet today’s demand, and at severe bottlenecks it fails. This conference addresses the reality that economic growth will increasingly depend upon or be at the mercy of our freight infrastructure.

  • Build professional capacity in all aspects of freight transport by disseminating best practices in supply chain and logistics.
  • Strengthen the ability of the public and private sectors to effectively plan, build, and maintain an efficient transportation network.
  • Examine and inform state and federal policies that support freight related economic development.
