Herff College of Engineering Intermodal Freight Transportation Institute (IFTI)
Work Force Summit

We invite YOU to join the conversation!

 The National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education (CFIRE) is sponsoring a Freight Workforce Summit on February 5-6, 2013 in Memphis, Tennessee. This event is hosted by the Intermodal Freight Transportation Institute (IFTI) at the University of Memphis.

The Freight Workforce Summit provides an opportunity for private industry, public sector and academic institutions to discuss the growing workforce challenges facing this industry. We will discuss this critical issue with the intention of finding real solutions to a national problem. We want you to be part of the conversation. CFIRE will provide academic representation from a wide range of academic disciplines and universities.

The Freight Workforce Summit is held in conjunction with a national student symposium on freight. The two programs will be integrated to provide industry with opportunities to interact with some of the best transportation students from across the nation at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Click here to view the Work Force Summit agenda and the Student Symposium agenda. Each Freight Workforce Summit participant will be provided a book of resumes of students who are participating in the student symposium. The agenda provides plenty of time for the two groups to interact which will hopefully lead to future job opportunities.
