Jonathan Starks commented, “After the extremely volatile events that occurred last year, 2015 is shaping up into a much more 'normal' environment. However, there are still numerous issues that need to be dealt with for those in the transportation markets. Some need to be dealt with now, like the soft manufacturing environment. Others, like the coming regulatory risks, will be focused on looking at the future.”

The formal remarks will be followed by Q&A, so participants are requested to come with questions they have about the state of the industry.
