Register for the Freight and Logistics Symposium
Registration is now available for the 2019 Freight and Logistics Symposium, scheduled for Friday, December 6, from 7:30 a.m. to noon at the Delta Hotels Minneapolis Northeast. This annual event is designed to bring together members of the private sector and government to discuss current issues in the freight and logistics industry and to share public and private initiatives intended to strengthen the freight transportation system.
This year’s symposium will explore how the public and private sectors can and should respond to natural disasters that cause disruptions in the freight system. Jeffrey Dorko, assistant administrator for logistics at FEMA’s Office of Response and Recovery, will give the keynote presentation.
The event will also feature a panel discussion focused on how public-private partnerships could be leveraged to improve disaster response. In addition, a representative from the MnDOT Office of Sustainability will share perspectives on planning for and responding to natural disasters.
