2018 Governor’s Freight Industry Summit

Presented by:  Wisconsin Department of Transportation
Location:  Sheraton Madison Hotel   (706 John Nolen Drive, Madison, WI 53713)
Time: 12:00 PM – 3:30 PM CDT

If you are a local engineer, elected official, an economic development professional or a manufacturer that relies heavily on freight, this is a meeting for you!

As a continuation of Governor Scott Walker’s Freight Friendly Wisconsin Initiative, this gathering of freight industry stakeholders from the private and public sectors will focus on the critical role that local roads play in the freight transportation chain. Three different panels, comprised of representatives from the private and public sectors, will discuss ways to protect and invest in local transportation systems.

Panel topics include:

  • Strengthening Local Transportation Systems
  • Infrastructure Protection
  • Funding Strategies

Please join us in the discussion and learn more about these topics from law enforcement, local government, and private freight carriers and shippers.

A catered lunch is included in your registration fee. If you would like a vegetarian version of the lunch, please send your request to freight@dot.wi.gov

This will be the sixth Governor’s Freight Industry Summit.

Online registration is recommended but tickets will be available the day of the Summit for $55.
