What Have We Done For You This Week?
This week the Ohio Trucking Association participated in a number of logistics conferences around the state to promote the impact the trucking industry has on the economy of Ohio. Many ancillary organizations such as chambers, economic development, and government organizations have increased their focus on the movement of freight as an economic engine for the state and have started to host conference around logistics. While a lot of this programming is around intermodal, freight rail, and ship they miss the importance of trucking as the primary mode of freight movement in Ohio. Attending and presenting at these meetings keeps trucking at the fore front of the conversation of the logistics modes mix.
