Talking Freight Seminar (CM | 1.5)
July 18, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Registration for the July 18 Talking Freight seminar on Siting of Freight Facilities is now available.
Description: Public officials at the state and local level are frequently called on to consider the siting of freight intermodal terminals, inland ports, and warehouses and distribution centers. To formulate effective economic development strategies and react appropriately to proposals for the development of public or private freight facilities, public-sector decision makers benefit from understanding of private-sector financial and transportation drivers for siting freight facilities. This Talking Freight seminar will feature presentations from industry representatives who specialize in developing supply chain and intermodal facilities, along with a presentation on NCFRP Report 13, Freight Facility Location Selection: A Guide for Public Officials.
