The Supply Chain


The Supply Chain drives our economy. Maximizing emerging opportunities in the ever-changing Supply Chain requires adjustments, revisions, and new approaches. Intermodal opportunities are key to realizing the developing opportunities. With a projected 37% increase in freight by 2040 and an aging infrastructure, there is great need for innovative thinking, creative solutions, new collaborations, and flexibility.

We work with the Supply Chain. This includes railroads, ports, waterway users, suppliers, economic development organizations, and related industries.

The Rail Supply Chain Summit


In 2010, Ms. Pitz founded The Rail Supply Chain Summit, an annual one-day event that began as a luncheon and has evolved to initiate more than ½ billion dollars in deals. The Summit presents more than 7 nationally renowned Keynote Speakers, at least 4 Breakout Sessions, excellent networking opportunities, and delicious food (plated breakfast and lunch plus a closing reception). The day before, we host VIP events for our top sponsors and speakers that are limited to a maximum of 32. For 2017, these included a private visit to the Illinois International Port District, the Port of Chicago, a reception, and a gourmet dinner with special news announcements.

Our goals are to:

  1. Provide a forum where business deals are initiated.
  2. Highlight emerging opportunities.
  3. Promote greater collaborative cooperation among the transportation sectors.

Collaborative Cooperation


With our serious infrastructure issues, collaborative support among the transportation sectors is critical. As both the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers are vitally important for the domestic and global market place, MEP&A strongly encourages Supply Chain providers to join together to support infrastructure funding that is desperately needed for our locks and dams. The Waterways Council, Inc. is spearheading these campaigns. The following video, “Waterways Deliver” recaps key issues of these campaigns.
