Minnesota Statewide Freight Summit/Symposium

Mid-America Freight Coalition 

The Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) at the University of Minnesota is hosting the Minnesota Statewide Freight Summit/Symposium. This meeting will be held on December 5, 2014 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This event aims to foster executive-level thought leadership between government and industry to develop a freight action plan that supports an efficient and competitive freight transportation network in Minnesota. Speakers from the public and private sectors will share their perspectives on supply chains and freight transportation and their importance to Minnesota’s industries and economy.

Through participation in interactive discussions and working sessions, attendees will also help shape the development of a statewide freight action agenda. These sessions will focus on identifying needs, issues, and opportunities—and on translating these opportunities into actions.
