WHAT WE DO
Our daily goods come from all over the world. As our societal needs grow, we need to address the critical issues affecting the planning, design and operation of the nation’s intermodal freight transportation systems.
The Intermodal Freight Transportation Institute (IFTI) merged with CAESER in August 2020 to create the Division of Transportation and Logistics (DTL). This division expands research into transportation and takes advantage of CAESER’s expertise from its other divisions. DTL, under the direction of Dr. Stephanie Ivey, will continue hosting the annual State of Freight conference. DTL’s research focuses on key transportation and logistics areas described below and merge its research interests with CAESER’s other divisions; thereby, strengthening the Center’s research program.
Mark your calendar for the 15th annual State of Freight Conference that will be hosted Thursday, September 30th in partnership with the Memphis World Trade Club and the 70th annual Port Night event!
