Date: August 18, 2010

Time: 1:00 – 2:30 pm ET

Topic: Freight Performance Measures


Federal and state governments are increasingly looking toward performance measure to improve the functioning of the transportation system and optimize their investment strategies. How are beneficial cargo owners and carriers using performance measures, what are applications for the public sector, and what are measures the private side believes are important for the public sector? What does the public sector look to the private sector for with regard to performance measures?
