CITT State of the Trade and Transportation Industry Town Hall Meeting
“Smart Technology and Port Operations: Implications for the Economy, the Environment and the Workforce”

The annual CITT Town Hall will address the future of how we move goods and what this means for our national and regional competitiveness, the livability of our communities and the opportunities and challenges for the workforce. Technology can contribute to a more efficient and cleaner supply chain, including port and terminal operations; but technology also contributes to a change in the way goods are moved and the skills needed by the waterfront workforce.
