The Mid-America Freight Coalition is entering into a collaborative partnership with the Institute for Trade and Transportation Studies (ITTS).
This interregional partnership encompasses more than half of the United States and includes nearly every core industry—agriculture, automotive, manufacturing, mining, commodities, logistics, shipping, and warehousing.
Representatives from the MAFC and ITTS will work together to further encourage cooperative freight development between the two coalitions and their member states.
The Institute for Trade and Transportation Studies examines the effects of commercial freight movements on domestic and international activities, with reference to infrastructure and transportation needs, and safety implications.
Current membership consists of the State Departments of Transportation from the following States: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
ITTS also sponsors the yearly Freight in the Southeast conference.
