FTR Schedules State of Freight Webinar: Trucking Outlook for 2017

01.06.17 | FTR

Can history be wrong?  Tune into the next FTR State of Freight webinar to see if this year will defy historical patterns and produce a rising economy late in a very old recovery.  Carriers will like the expanded volume but shippers will be scrambling for capacity in a market already constrained by regulatory pressures.  This conjunction of forces could produce record driver shortages.

Join FTR’s Noël Perry, Truck and Transportation Expert, as he walks through and discusses the trucking outlook for 2017 during this webinar scheduled for Thursday, January 12th, at 11 a.m. EDT.

This is a thirty-minute webinar moderated by Eric Starks, Chairman and CEO.  Participant Q&A session will be held after the presentation.

Noël commented, “This will be a year of great uncertainty.  Trucking companies need to understand the major economic and industry trends over the next 12 to eighteen months.  We will look at critical flash points in a year that has the potential to end in one of several radically different conditions.”
