Now in its 9th year the Ohio Conference on Freight will be held in Cincinnati for the first time. This year’s conference is to be offered in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Mid-America Freight Coalition, a regional organization that cooperates in the planning, operation, preservation, and improvement of transportation infrastructure in the Midwest. As befits the Cincinnati location of the 2015 event, the states of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky will collaborate on this year’s program. Key organizational support is being provided by the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) and the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI).

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.
