Convening for Action

Freight Forum IntelliConferences® enable stakeholders to create multi-dimensional solutions for today’s most pressing transportation and supply chain issues.

Why is this Needed?

Our supply chains are unorganized. The truth is, neither marketplace dynamics nor vested interest lobbying lead to smart supply chains. For North America’s future prosperity, they must be reconceived with a long-term vision.

The problem is not a lack of intelligence—there are so many smart, committed people in industry, government, and the community. What we have been lacking are the effective forums and methods for gathering that intelligence into smart policy, programs, and marketplace improvements.

How does the Freight Forum work?

A facilitated, inquiry-based process called IntelliSynthesis brings stakeholders together with diverse perspectives. The IntelliSynthesis design protects the integrity of the group dialogue process. No vested interest can dominate the interactions. All participants have an equal voice, which can only be enhanced by the logic and efficacy of one’s contribution to the dialogue.

What will be discussed and when?

The North American Freight Forum provides this collaborative method for issues that currently inhibit efficiency and sustainability in the movement of freight on the North American continent. We have identified the following initial issue areas in concert with our industry and governmental colleagues.
  1. Rail Growth Capitalization
  2. Rail Business Culture Transformation
  3. Rail Management – Rail Labor
  4. Rail Regulatory Excellence
  5. Rail Trucking Coordination
  6. Containerized International Freight
  7. Revitalizing the Rail Carload System
  8. Rail Technology Adoption
  9. Rail Energy Efficiency
  10. Freight Transportation Land Use

Why Now?

“As communities look to modernize their infrastructure and supply chain networks in response to 21st century industrial demands, a new approach is needed that is ecosystem centric while also balancing diverse stakeholder interests to arrive at the best solutions.”
