FTR and AllTranstek to Host Tank Car Market Webinar


FTR and AllTranstek will host a webinar "The Changing Landscape of the Tank Car Market: Regulations, Trends, and Forecasts" on May 19, 2014 from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. EST. The webinar will provide attendees with a Closer Look at the Tank Car Fleet, give a Regulatory Update on the Tank Car Fleet, and provide an Outlook for the Future of the Tank Car Market

With the recent announcement by Transport Canada regarding new tank regulations, the industry now has some concrete information. However, clarity on this issue is far from certain until the changes to the U.S. regulations are finalized and announced. FTR and AllTranstek will provide insights from some of the best thought leaders in the industry.  The 90-minute webinar will be jam packed with analysis and data to help participants better understand the changing landscape in this dynamic sector.

Dick Kloster, Senior Vice President of AllTranstek and a Senior Consultant with FTR commented, “Even though we don’t know the full regulations, we’ve been able to run some alternative scenarios for planning purposes. This is allowing us to put better numbers to the regulations and more fully understand the impact to the industry.”
