We value our relationships with the railroads. We always are honored to be their invited guests at the prestigious Traffic Club Dinner.

Several members of the staff of MHF Services were guests at The Traffic Club of Pittsburgh’s 109th annual dinner held March 17, 2011 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.

The Traffic Club of Pittsburgh, founded in 1902, is an organization of professionals who share a common interest in transportation and logistics. Members come from 33 states, Canada, Mexico and Europe and include representatives from Class I and short-line railroads, marine transporters, and trucking companies as well as representatives of the industries and businesses they serve.

MHF, a leading provider of packaging, transportation, logistics and technical services, has had longstanding attendance at the annual Traffic Club dinners. In 1994, MHF pioneered the use of rail in the radioactive and hazardous waste markets, creating a unique market niche within the railroad service industry. MHF maintains more than $50 million in owned and leased railroad assets, including a private fleet of approximately 1,000 railcars.

MHF is among the railroads’ largest clients for the transport of environmentally sensitive materials. MHF’s logistical experts maintain in-depth knowledge of and close working relationships with all Class I railroads and many short-line railroads in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

“We value our relationships with the railroads,” said MHF President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Shawver, “We always are honored to be their invited guests at the prestigious Traffic Club Dinner.”

The MHF staff members attending this year’s dinner were Scott Dempsey, Vice President; William Follett, Vice President; Robert Woodburn, Director of Operations; Kirk Collingwood, Account Manager; and William Dawson, Business Development Manager. They were the guests of CSX Transportation, Union Pacific, and GATX Corporation.
