In August, the MAFC technical representatives from the 10 member states will meet in Columbus, Ohio for the 2017 MAFC Annual Meeting. This is the second year that the meeting is being held in partnership with the Ohio Conference on Freight, a move that allows MAFC members to join over 300 professionals from the private and public sectors from across the United States and Canada involved in freight and the economy.

This year’s meeting will focus on smart logistics. Conference attendees will learn how smart technologies are being incorporated in transportation infrastructure projects and explore the impacts these technologies will have on the future workforce, infrastructure, and economy as well as what these evolving technologies mean for the planning and operations at state and local agencies.

MAFC would like to thank the Ohio Conference on Freight, the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC), the Ohio Association of Regional Council (OARC), and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) as well the state MAFC technical representatives for the continued support and participation in the Mid-America Freight Coalition. The Coalition also wishes to thank HDR, Inc. and CPCS for their support of MAFC events at the annual meeting.


MAFC members will join the pre-conference tour of the Transportation Research Center in East Liberty, Ohio. The Transportation Research Center (TRC) is the largest independent vehicle testing facility in the United States. It is located on 4,500 acres of courses, trails and tracks designed to test all types of vehicles including freight, military and emergency response vehicles. In addition to its multiple partnerships with the private sector, TRC is a partner to the State of Ohio, OSU, and local and regional agencies in testing smart technologies.
