A FESTIVAL LIKE NO OTHER

NOV. 1-3, 2022 • CHATTANOOGA, TN • IN-PERSON EVENT

FreightWaves is bringing a completely immersive experience that is bigger and better than ever before to the heart of Freight Alley and home to FreightWaves–Chattanooga, Tennessee! The Future of Freight Festival, or F3, will be the hottest FreightTech event of the year, continuing FreightWaves’ tradition of bringing together industry leaders to discuss the key factors impacting freight markets and the latest trends pushing our industry forward. 

F3 will take over downtown Chattanooga on November 1-3, 2022, with events throughout the city and our central hub at the Chattanooga Convention Center. We’re excited to show off our community and support our local small businesses while continuing to raise the bar for events. The event will not only include a forward-thinking freight conference with rapid-fire demos, interactive sponsor kiosks and thought-provoking speakers, but also a festival that includes exclusive VIP experiences, entertainment and music, all in the Scenic City of Chattanooga on the banks of the Tennessee River.  

Explore the future of freight technology, engage with industry leaders and attend discussions focused around all modes – trucking, air, ocean and rail. Experience sessions with experts and entrepreneurs, and dive deep into the near future of drones, autonomous and electric vehicles. While it’s technology that drives our future forward, it’s the people behind the innovation that bring the creation to life – F3 will be a full celebration of just that.
