7th Annual North American Marine Highways & Logistics Conference

April 6 - 7, 2010
Conference Center at the Maritime Institute, Baltimore, MD

It’s a new world of transportation out there. Policymakers and transportation stakeholders are looking for holistic approaches to moving goods in ways that are energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective. The marine highway – the movement of goods by water as an integral part of an intermodal supply chain – is going to play a significant role in the future of green transportation. Lawmakers and government officials in Washington are looking for ways to reduce carbon emissions, relieve highway congestion and improve fuel efficiency, and the marine highways are a natural part of the solution.

The Journal of Commerce Marine Highways Logistics Conference has earned its reputation as the premier gathering place of the people who will finance, build and operate the marine highway system. The 2010 conference will continue the tradition. Listen to the experts and practitioners discuss how Green Shipping will change the way goods move in America. The 2010 Marine Highways Logistics Conference will be held April 6-7, 2010 at the Conference Center at the Maritime Institute near Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The center is easily accessible from Washington, and we expect our experts will be joined by the key decision-makers who are shaping the new transportation landscape.
