Two weeks from today, the “F3: Future of Freight Festival” will begin its second big day in Chattanooga. Attendees will be in the heart of Freight Alley at FreightWaves Headquarters. Chattanooga will come alive through this unique FreightTech experience

Although FreightWaves has held large events across the country, this will be the first time it will hold an event in Chattanooga, known as the Scenic City. F3 will continue the FreightWaves tradition of bringing together industry leaders to discuss key issues affecting the freight market and the latest trends, rules and regulations affecting the freight, logistics and transportation industries.

From November 1-3, Tuesday through Thursday, the center of F3 will be the Chattanooga Convention Center, but events will take place at various locations in downtown Chattanooga. The FreightWaves team is excited to showcase the city and support local small businesses while continuing to raise the bar for our industry events.

Overview of F3

“F3: The Future of Festival” will be a great conference with thought-provoking speakers and industry leaders. But there will be much more – a quick presentation of FreightTech’s latest releases, an interactive presentation and an event that will include exclusive VIP experiences, entertainment and music, all in Chattanooga on the Tennessee River.

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the future of FreightTech, engage with FreightWaves executives and employees, and attend discussions focused on all modes of transportation: road, air, sea and rail. There will be sessions with experts and business people, and plenty of opportunities to connect with colleagues and new friends from across the industry.

Technology is driving the future of transportation. However, it is the new buyers and users who are at the center of F3.
