The Smart Freight Centre, a centre of excellence for goods movement launched last April, held a one-day symposium on November 4 at University of Toronto.
Like the Smart Freight Centre, which is a collaborative network, the Smart Freight Symposium was a collaborative event involving many individuals and organizations with a wide variety of interests in freight transportation.
Over 20 speakers and moderators graced the podium over the course of the day, and 100+ filled the audience. All had one common goal: to share knowledge and learn from each other.
