Registration for the August 15 Talking Freight seminar on Freight
Considerations in Traffic Incident Management is now available. 


Date/Time: August 15, 2012 1:00 - 2:30 pm EDT


Description: The U.S. economy depends on reliable freight transportation
to link businesses with suppliers and markets throughout the nation and
the world. However, natural and man-made events that occur both within
the U.S. and globally have the potential to impact the supply chain and
overall freight movement, with repercussions on the commerce and the
economy. With traffic incident management (TIM), a planned and
coordinated program, incidents are detected and removed, traffic
restored to capacity as safely and quickly as possible. This webinar
will discuss the relationship of TIM and impact of traffic incidents to
goods movement, industry perspectives, ways to engage the goods movement
industry, and examples of initiatives that may help with the reducing
the impact of incidents on goods movement.
