Technology is revolutionizing the way we move things. Whether it’s across the floor of a warehouse or all the way across the country, big data, robotics, autonomous vehicles and drones are making logistics and distribution better, and it’s happening in Ohio.

The 2018 Ohio Conference on Freight: >>Fast Forward Freight, to be held August 15 through 17 in Cincinnati, will explore the future of logistics. More than 300 attendees will hear from supply chain and logistics experts from Uber, Kroger and DHL about where this industry is headed as well as have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions ranging from global logistics to sustainability and policy.

JobsOhio is a proud, premier sponsor of this event, and I encourage you to attend this important conference by registering today.
