The NU Transportation Center is offering a specialized Executive Program focusing on the volatile and changing Freight Transportation landscape. The program scheduled for Nov. 7-9, here on Northwestern’s Evanston campus, will explore the complex set of factors that must be considered when making freight transportation and logistics decisions, including price, service, access, mode selection, dependability and contractual arrangements. It will also provide insights into new technologies now available to help improve operational performance and service quality.

We think this program will be of interest to many of our colleagues working in the field and hope that you will share this information with others you think may be interested.

Early Bird Registration rate available through Oct. 14th.
