AgTC plans to join conference, hold workshop afterward
Transportation Go!, the premier conference for soybean, grain and other agricultural transportation issues in the Upper Midwest, is set to take place March 15-16, 2023, in Omaha, Nebraska, at the Hilton Omaha, and registration for this second-annual event is now open at transportationgo.com.
The 2023 version of Transportation Go! follows a wildly successful and interactive 2022 show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The inaugural event, known then as the Northern Commodity Transportation Conference, took place in 2020 in Bloomington, Minnesota.
Thanks to the generous support of show sponsor, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, Transportation Go! moves to another key ag transportation hub, Omaha, to bring together the industry’s top stakeholders, from boots-on-the-ground commodity growers and organizations to traders and shippers of specialty field crops. Together and through a robust agenda featuring high-level speakers, they will discuss challenges and opportunities for agricultural freight moved on intermodal, rail and ocean lanes, including containerized shipping and refrigerated traffic.
Transportation Go! is a highly engaging conference focused on in-depth discussions on the global supply chain and how it affects the vital movement of agricultural products from the Upper Midwest to locations throughout the country and the world.
“Transportation Go! is an active conference, not a passive one,” said Eric Wenberg, executive director of the Specialty Soya and Grains Alliance, which organizes and hosts the event. “We encourage discussion and expect real dialogue to take place during every segment of the agenda. There are many challenges in agricultural transportation, and this conference puts smart, experienced people from different avenues of the supply chain into the same room to take on those challenges together.”
This year, SSGA is thrilled to announce that the Agriculture Transportation Coalition (AgTC) will take part in Transportation Go! and hold a workshop for its members at the Hilton Omaha following the conclusion of the conference on March 16 (watch for details in the coming weeks).
Besides Nebraska’s Department of Agriculture and its cooperative support from that state’s various commodity boards (Nebraska Soybean Board, Nebraska Corn Board, Nebraska Ethanol Board, Nebraska Wheat Board), Transportation Go! thus far is also supported by Platinum Sponsors, including the Illinois Soybean Association, the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council, the North Dakota Corn Council, the North Dakota Soybean Council, the South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council and the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board; along with Gold Sponsor, the Ohio Soybean Council. As well, Transportation Go! has received sponsorship support from Norseman Protective Solutions and Ray-Mont Logistics.
