Transportation and its related infrastructure are the lifeblood of any economy but especially here in the Garden State. There has been much talk in the last few years about the need for essential upgrades to the state’s transportation infrastructure. CIANJ created a Transportation Forum where our members could discuss the challenges they face in transporting goods and services as well as their employees around the state and beyond.

CIANJ is proud to announce our first Transportation Summit which came out of ideas forum members had. This wide-ranging event will cover many areas including the state’s ports, trains, road and highway transit, supply chain, logistics and more.

  • NJ DOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti
  • Dan Mulligan, Director of Sales and Marketing, Global Container Terminals
  • Ronald Leibman, Partner/Co-Chair of Transportation and Logistics Group, Riker Danzig
  • Anthony Attanasio, Vice President, AECOM

Invited speakers:

  • Assemblyman Dan Benson, Assembly Transportation Chair
