Freight in the Southeast, 2018

_____________________

freight week

This year’s ITTS Freight in the Southeast Conference will be as a part of FreightWeek STL, with the Missouri Department of Transportation serving as the ITTS Host State. Freight industry leaders are coordinating FreightWeek STL, a four-day confluence
of industry leaders and influencers, to share ideas and collaboratively promote the forward movement of America’s freight industry. St. Louis Regional Freightway, Inland Marine Expo (IMX), and the Institute for Trade and Transportation Studies (ITTS) have partnered to develop an array of technical sessions concentrating on all facets of the freight industry. These events are scheduled May 21-24, 2018. Registration information will be available in the coming weeks. FreightWeek STL events will be held at the America’s Center Convention Complex and the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel.

IMX is the annual trade show for the inland and intracoastal marine transportation
industry, and with the growing interest in promoting waterways for freight activity, the ITTS member states felt this would be a great opportunity to partner with both IMX and St. Louis Regional Freightway to focus not only on waterways, but also on general freight movement and economic development trends. (This is the IMX’s fifth year, so you can review more at http://inlandmarineexpo.com.)
