FTR is offering a complimentary industry webinar exploring the key issues in transportation. From disruptive technologies to infrastructure investment and changing regulations, freight transportation is set to undergo some significant changes in the coming years. Companies need to be prepared by proactively thinking through these issues, rather than letting them turn into larger problems down the road. Attendees will hear from FTR’s CEO Eric Starks, and industry expert Larry Gross, as they discuss the issues and provide insights during this webinar scheduled for Thursday, June 8th, at 11 a.m. EDT.

Moderator Jonathan Starks, COO of FTR, commented, "We are approaching a new era of transportation in the coming decade. From a revamp of the regulatory environment to the potential for significant new investment in infrastructure, the current administration is going to play a role in this transition. Additionally, the disrupting effects of autonomous vehicles and freight-matching technologies will create opportunities - and threats - throughout the supply chain. In this webinar I get to ask Eric and Larry what the key issues are that FTR is focusing on - for both the next year, and the next decade."

This is a thirty-minute webinar. Participant Q&A session will be held after the presentation.
