Intelligent mobility is not just changing the way we drive our personal cars. Intelligent solutions are also transforming the freight and delivery industry. TennSMART’s fall member meeting on November 5-6 will explore innovations across the spectrum of freight and delivery with three programmatic focuses:

  1. Long haul freight services
  2. Last mile delivery
  3. Terminal and port operations

Each element will address the ways intelligent systems in everything from platooning to software to vehicle sensors and tire technology impact the movement of goods across the U.S.
