The Smart Freight Symposium on sustainable urban and regional freight innovation was held November 4, 2019 at the University of Toronto Faculty Club. The one-day event featured two keynotes and 21 speakers in four panels. About 100 invited guests attended from the private sector, four levels of government, NGOs, associations, consulting firms, and universities.
The symposium was presented by the Smart Freight Centre (SFC), a collaborative network established by the Region of Peel, McMaster University, University of Toronto, and York University. A centre of excellence on goods movement, the SFC was launched in April 2019 and plans to present a Smart Freight Symposium annually.
