Herff College of Engineering Intermodal Freight Transportation Institute (IFTI)

Global Appalachian Summer Meeting

IFTI welcomed 40 members of the Appalachian Regional Commission to the University of Memphis in June for their 2012 Global Appalachia Summer Meeting. Memphis is a meaningful location for the meeting as it serves as a key Appalachian highway and intermodal rail gateway to the west and then on to and from key Asian markets.

Tennessee ETAC representative, Will Alexander, hosted the meeting. IFTI coordinated the meeting logistics. The working meetings took place on the University of Memphis campus in the Herff College of Engineering Executive Training Center. While in Memphis, in addition to the meetings, the group participated in a FedEx Night Sort tour. Read the Press Release.
