Urban Freight Symposium Thursday July 19, 2018

Urban Freight Symposium  

Thursday July 19, 2018

The New York metropolitan region’s economic strength, vibrancy and livability as a world city relies on the complex logistics and supply chains that support the city’s residents and businesses. Freight tonnage in the New York region is expected to rise by 46% through 2040, but with 91% of freight moved by truck, this growth can only be sustained by an efficient road network. While the freight industry relies heavily on the region’s road network, so do the millions of city residents and visitors for all aspects of daily life.  At this conference hear how regional and city agencies are planning for the future of freight, accommodating its various needs, stimulating job growth and mitigating some of the negative impacts associated with freight activity. Hear from some of the leading freight operators as to the challenges and their concerns while serving their customer needs in this dense urban environment.
