Intermodal group offers new training program

Posted on August 20, 2008

The Intermodal Transportation Institute (ITI) at the University of Denver, in a joint venture with the National Center for Intermodal Transportation (NCIT), will sponsor a two-and-a-half day training program, – “Intermodal Freight Transportation and the Public Planning Process” – which will be held at the University October 13 to 15.

The training program will focus on several key topics including: how public investment in the nation’s transportation system will benefit the movement of freight; what types of strategies are most effective for successful interfaces between public- and private-sector interests; and how to get freight stakeholders interested in the transportation planning process in order to maximize a cooperative passenger and freight transportation network.

The registration fee for the training program is $1,500 and covers instruction, program materials, meals and an ITI-University of Denver certificate of participation upon completion. Interested parties are encouraged to register early as participation is limited to 25 attendees. For additional information, visit www.du.edu/transportation
