Join us on November 3rd, at 11:30 a.m. EST!

Join us for a timely discussion on how Massport is handling pandemic-related challenges along with new opportunities evolving from the pandemic. Under Ms. Wieland’s tenure, Massport has expanded significantly over the past few years with expansion at Logan Airport and the addition of 3 new cranes at Conley Terminal.

What does this mean for importers, exporters, and travelers? What is Ms. Wieland’s vision for the future of Conley Terminal and the airline industry? How does a smaller port like Boston compete with the larger East Coast ports?
