The Port & Intermodal Communities Join Forces with the Private Sector to Explore New Financial Opportunities In Mutually-Beneficial Partnerships


Don't Miss The Pre-Summit Workshop

RISKS & REWARD: Successful Public-Private Partnerships For Port & Intermodal Improvements

About the Conference

Last year’s premiere edition of the North American Port & Intermodal Finance & Investment Summit proved to be an exceptional event – both in terms of providing a mutually beneficial exchange of perspectives and insights between the public and private sectors - and as a networking forum to bring together the port & intermodal and financial communities.

This year’s Summit promises to confirm its status as a “go-to” destination event that offers all participants a unique occasion to explore a variety of opportunities in partnership. The timing couldn’t be more essential. North America’s port and intermodal system requires substantial new investment to meet the skyrocketing demand being generated by the dramatic growth in trade volume. As the port and intermodal communities appraise their options for financing these new investments, they’re also re-examining their historic business models and exploring the advantages of working with private investors. In turn, the private financial sector has come to realize that ports are sound investments and are actively searching for opportunities to help create the mutually-beneficial expansion of port and intermodal infrastructure.

Therefore, the North American Port & Intermodal Finance & Investment Summit will consolidate its position as a major venue in which port authorities, terminal operators, shipping lines, railways, trucking companies, lenders, investors, infrastructure funds and other financial players come together to engage in the important work of sharing perspectives, initiating a constructive dialogue and establishing the financial structures necessary for a strong and vibrant port and intermodal transportation system of the future.
