Rail Symposium Coming Soon

When we say we deal with EVERY mode of transportation here at KMPO, we're not joking. That's why we, along with our sister agency SRTC, are hosting a Rail Symposium later this month.

We're bringing three national rail and freight experts to Spokane on June 22. Avery Grimes, John Ficker, and Arthur Shoener have spent several decades each in the rail industry in a variety of capacities and will present on the continuing evolution of the railroad and its effect on the economics of the inland pacific region.

Thanks to the International Trade Alliance, Greater Spokane Incorporated, Avista, and Inland Empire Distribution Systems for sponsoring this symposium. It is a free event and open to everyone.

Want more information? Here's a flyer for the event.
