2024 Industry Leader Forum – Transportation & Logistics

May 2 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

Transportation Tech

How can coordinated transportation system tech impact commerce, our communities and our binational economy?

What is the immediate future of automation for companies throughout the regional, national and international supply chain?  

On May 2nd, BNP’s Transportation and Logistics ILF convenes leaders to discuss the ways that both businesses and public sector entities can use new technologies to help people, and products, get where they need to go.

We will be joined by Ron Rienas, CEO of the Buffalo & Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority, for an update on the commercial Pre-Arrival Readiness Evaluation (PARE) project at the Peace Bridge and how it will expedite truck crossings into the United States and reduce border congestion.

The following transportation & logistics leaders will then participate in a panel discussion on how today’s tech can create a more efficient approach to all modes of vehicular transportation:

Michael Finn, Executive Director, GBNRTC
Athena Hutchins, Executive Director, NITTEC
Patrick Lang, Associate Manager, Logistics, Tesla

The BNP will also provide a government advocacy update on the issues that impact your organizations on a daily basis.
