About the Event

The annual Freight and Logistics Symposium is designed to bring together the private sector and government to discuss current issues in the freight and logistics industry and to hear about public and private initiatives to strengthen our freight transportation system.

The 2022 symposium focused on future trends in freight and supply chain resiliency. Keynote speaker Andrew Petrisin, supply chain advisor at the USDOT, shared his experience navigating supply chain disruptions from the federal perspective. He also discussed how a renewed public-private effort shaped the national response, and explained why developing a commercially competitive and operationally cooperative supply chain is critical for the future of the United States.

After the keynote presentation, a panel of local industry leaders discussed the implications of the Freight Logistics Optimization Works initiative for Minnesota. Other presentations outlined strategies for incorporating resilience into transportation networks and explored freight and economic forecasting.
