The National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) and the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) co-sponsor the Fall Meeting 2022, at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel, St. Louis, MO, October 17-20, 2022.

The Fall Meeting is a four-day, NDTA-USTRANSCOM co-sponsored, annual event providing government and industry the opportunity to identify and solve logistics and transportation issues together; learn about new technologies, develop best practices, and build professional and personal relationships. This year’s theme, “Defense Transportation & Logistics…Evolving the Strategic Advantage” considers our highly contested and competitive environment and addresses the challenges existing to our logistics and transportation systems with intent and desire to outperform our peers in all domains and geographic locations.

Attendees bring a wide range of U.S. Government, industry, and academic experts together with the goal of improving national logistics and transportation systems to achieve a more resilient and reliable Defense Industrial Base.

Our agenda includes general sessions with four to five keynote speakers including the Commander USTRANSCOM and two to three moderated roundtable discussions. Our Transportation Academy consists of over 64 Transportation Academy classes organized under eight topic tracks and taught by general/flag officers and C-suite experts. We will feature a dynamic Expo Hall & Resource Center with many opportunities to network and share information. Lastly, the week will feature a wide variety of meetings to include government, industry, NDTA Committees, and Young Leader Professional Development sessions.

Please come and join the discussion and help us evolve the strategic advantage! Can’t wait to see you in St. Louis!
