"Are We There Yet?"
It seems like the North American marine highway is on endless construction zone, and the backseat passengers are beginning to wonder, when will it end? They’re asking, how are we going to sell it? What is it going to cost? Where are we going to get the ships? And what’s the big deal with helping the environment?
The Journal of Commerce’s 6th Annual North America's Marine Highways Conference will provide a road map to where coastal shipping is going, and what it’s going to take to get there.

a.. America’s Deep Blue Highway
b.. The Green Highway
