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

While FreightWaves has presented major events around the nation, this is the first time it will host an event in Chattanooga, which is known as the Scenic City. F3 will continue the FreightWaves tradition of bringing together industry leaders to discuss key issues impacting freight markets as well as the latest trends, laws and regulations impacting the freight, logistics and supply chain industries.

To be held Tuesday through Thursday, November 1-3, F3’s central hub will be the Chattanooga Convention Center, but events will be held at different locations around downtown Chattanooga. FreightWaves staff members are excited to show off the city as well as to support local small businesses – all while continuing to raise the bar for events in our industry. 

Overview of F3 

F3: Future of Freight Festival will be a major freight conference featuring thought-provoking speakers and industry leaders. But there will be so much more – rapid-fire demonstrations of the latest in FreightTech, interactive sponsor exhibits and a festival that will include exclusive VIP experiences, entertainment and music, all in Chattanooga on the banks of the Tennessee River.

‍Attendees will have opportunities to explore the future of FreightTech, engage with industry leaders and the staff of FreightWaves, and attend discussions focused on all transportation modes: trucking, air, ocean and rail. There will be sessions with experts and entrepreneurs, and multiple opportunities to network with colleagues and new acquaintances from across the industry. 

Technology is driving the future of freight forward. However, it’s the people behind the innovation and those using it that are the focus of F3.
