PORT ELIZABETH, N.J., Nov. 22, 2013 – The Super Bowl slated for MetLife Stadium in February 2014 will place short-term stress on the metropolitan area’s transportation infrastructure. But what about the region’s long-term needs? What needs to be done to meet the new challenges and opportunities facing the region’s businesses, commuters and residents?
On Thursday, December 5, NAIOP New Jersey will host the appropriately titled “Transportation & Logistics Update: Life After the Super Bowl” at the New York Shipping Association Training Center in Port Elizabeth. Heads of the New Jersey Department of Transportation (DOT) and Port Authority of New York/New Jersey will discuss what lies ahead for this region over the next few years. That outlook will be followed by a panel of supply chain and transportation logistics experts focusing on latest trends in location, reverse logistics, distribution models, freight rail trends and the impact on commercial real estate.
Confirmed speakers include Port Authority Chairman David Samson; DOT Commissioner James Simpson; Anne Strauss-Wieder of A. Strauss-Wieder, Inc.; Michelle Comerford of BLS & Co.; and William Goetz of CSX. Additional speakers are being finalized.
The event will begin with registration, networking and breakfast at 7:45 a.m., followed by the program at 8:30 a.m. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are pending for multiple professions.
