On Oct. 3 and 4, the Port of Portland will host the Northwest Global Freight Conference at the Governor Hotel. Formerly known as the Northwest Intermodal Conference, the event covers all types and modes of global freight moving in, out and through the region.
Focusing on the Pacific Northwest as a major gateway to and from U.S. freight markets – in addition to being the home of major agricultural shippers – the conference will address themes pertinent to the global supply chain’s vital connection to the region and its developing infrastructure. The event covers a broad spectrum of cargo types, ranging from containers to autos, project cargoes to bulk commodities, airfreight and more.
Projected attendance is between 250 and 350 shipping and logistics industry professionals. While the group will represent a cross section of those involved throughout the supply chain, the primary demographic is beneficial cargo owners and those who serve them.
The Port is the sponsoring host of the event, which is organized by Cargo Business News. Cargo Business News has been producing shipping and logistics media and industry events for the past decade, and managing regional freight conferences in the Pacific Northwest, Southeast, Southwest, and the Midwest.
