CHICAGO, May 11, 2022 — The Midwest Association of Rail Shippers (MARS) Summer Meeting will be held July 18–19, 2022 at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI. The theme for the meeting is “Switching the Focus for Mutual Success.”

“Amid the ongoing stress upon the global supply chain affecting all modes, railroads have continued to evolve in an effort to improve service and prepare for growth,” said MARS President Carrie Evans. “This meeting is very timely as it will allow shippers, railroads, and other key stakeholders to share ideas and collaborate on strategies to achieve future successes.”

The MARS semi-annual meetings include speakers, presentations, and panels examining current issues facing the freight rail industry. MARS also provides a forum to educate and inform in the areas of railroad operating practices, new innovations in transportation, and legislative matters. The agenda is still being finalized for the upcoming meeting.

The Summer Meeting starts with the annual Scholarship Golf Outing, a reception, and a networking dinner on Monday, July 18. The business meeting is scheduled for a full day on Tuesday, July 19.
