Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection secretary to give keynote address at Transportation Go!

Secretary Randy Romanski of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is the latest to join the agenda of Transportation Go!, which will be held in Milwaukee March 3-4.

Romanski served as DATCP deputy secretary and interim secretary prior to his June 2020 appointment as secretary. He has held leadership roles in multiple state agencies, including the Governor’s office, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Romanski will join other prominent leaders, including Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) Chair Dan Maffei and Surface Transportation Board (STB) member Robert Primus, on the conference agenda.

Transportation Go! is focused on improving the competitive shipping environment for U.S. agriculture shippers and exporters everywhere with an emphasis on the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway. Led by emcee Richard Stewart, Ph.D., director of Transportation and Logistics Research Center and professor at UW-Superior, Transportation Go! will cultivate in-depth discussions on the global supply chain and how it affects the vital movement of agricultural products domestically and around the world. 

“The future of agriculture comes from the future of transportation,” said Eric Wenberg, executive director of the Specialty Soya and Grains Alliance, host of the Transportation Go! conference. “We can’t build the future of agriculture without these organizations and leaders helping us.” 

Transportation Go! features a robust agenda that includes discussion and presentations on rail service in the Midwest, intermodal trucking and container access and future market demand forecasts. Jason Tutrone, transportation lawyer and partner at Thompson Hine, will look ahead with bright ideas he foresees impacting transportation and the supply chain during his keynote address.

Transportation Go! will take place March 3-4 at the Hyatt Regency in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A complete agenda and registration are available at
