The 2015 Freight Academy was held on April 26 – May 1, 2015. The next Freight Academy is being held April 30-May 5, 2017.
The Freight Academy is a unique immersion program designed to efficiently train public sector agency staff whose planning, operational, and/or management work impact goods movement decisions, investments, and interactions. The Eastern Transportation Coalition developed this Freight Academy with input from Coalition Members as a result of a number of trends that have emerged through their work on freight projects. These include: large increases in freight movements; dynamic changes in the goods movement industry; the need to understand freight as an integral part of the transportation system; and an increasing need to integrate freight facilities and operations with community goals. These important trends, combined with the knowledge that many experienced members of transportation agencies are scheduled to retire in the next 5 to 10 years, prompted the Eastern Transportation Coalition to sponsor the development and implementation of the Freight Academy.
