An international conference at the University of Michigan Monday-Wednesday, June 15-17, seeks ways to improve the efficiency and safety of truck transportation while reducing its environmental impact.

“Building the Policy Options Roadmap” is being hosted by UM’s Transportation Research Institute. UM says technical experts and public policy officials from around the world will lay out practical and workable options for ensuring economically viable and socially responsive U.S. commercial truck transportation.

Sponsors include the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Federal Highway Administration, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the American Trucking Associations and less-than-truckload company Con-way Freight, based in Ann Arbor, Mich.
