The 2014 MAFC Annual Meeting is being held in conjunction with the NAFTANEXT Summit on April 22-25, 2014 at the historic Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.
The MAFC is partnering with CAGTC and NAFTANEXT to expand its meeting to address the growing focus on energy and its importance to freight transportation. This conference will include both MAFC-specific and joint sessions that address a wide range of freight-related issues.

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has launched the next phase of the Missouri Freight Plan.
This plan aims to:
…engage business and local leaders, along with freight and industry stakeholders, in a discussion regarding funding of Missouri’s freight infrastructure. These discussions will prioritize how to use the scarce funds that exist, along with how to best invest new funds in freight projects, should these funds become available.
As a part of this effort, MoDOT is hosting a series of Freight Priorities and Investment Forums to discuss funding and share key findings about freight. MoDOT anticipates the draft freight plan to be prepared for review by June 2014, with a final report in September 2014.
For more information about the Missouri Freight Plan and these upcoming forums, consult the MoDOT News Release.
