Not 100%, no. Both have the sense of moving something, but that's about
it.

"Track" and "traffic" could also be confused because of the relative
closeness of spelling and sound.

Here's another one:

"PRINCIPAL RESPONSIBILITIES Responsible for all aspects of trafficking
the product to and from the main event site with close coordination
with the Programming Coordinator."

What do you make of that one?
