EDF Hosts International Freight Sustainability Strategies Forum, and You're Invited

How does supply chain sustainability help build competitive advantage? How does growth in Latin America trade create opportunities for new partnerships in the U.S.? Next Tuesday, February 25th, leading supply chain experts will gather in Irving, Texas to tackle these critical issues at a forum on sustainable logistics.

Speakers such as BNSF Railway, Dal-Tile Corporation, and EPA Blue Skyways will help drive the dialogue on innovative and cost-effective strategies for sustainable freight transportation. Attendees are also able to participate in an informal networking session at the end of the forum to exchange ideas and meet other experts working on sustainable supply chains. This event is open to supply chain sustainability champions looking to advance their knowledge and understanding of these issues.
