About the Conference

TRF is pleased to announce that the major sponsor this year is the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). USDA elected to be the major sponsor due to St. Louis’s influence and importance on agricultural transportation.

USDA will host a series of targeted agricultural breakout sessions during the conference featuring USDA presenters as well as Washington DC based USDA Transportation and Marketing officials.

The keynote speaker will be Nick Powers, Executive Vice President from UNCOMN, a greater St Louis based industry-leading business-to-business management and technology consulting services firm that “thrives on finding elegant solutions to wickedly complex organizational, logistic, process, data, and technical problems.” Mr. Powers will be discussing one of UNCOMN’s current problem assignments on technology solutions addressing Port of Los Angeles congestion issues.

Tours will be available on Thursday and Saturday for attendees to see first-hand the operations of St. Louis transportation systems and facilities, including Anheuser-Busch InBev, America’s Central Port and Melvin Price Locks & Dam.
