State of Freight Webinar: Lessons Learned in 2016

12.01.16 | FTR

The freight world keeps changing and three words we should not be using much these days is “business as usual”.  The market has a way of teaching us new things and that was certainly true in the freight world so far in 2016.  The coming year will be one where careful thought about market uncertainties will have big payoffs. Join us as we begin that process. Join FTR’s Larry Gross, Intermodal and Rail Expert, and Noël Perry, Truck and Transportation Expert, as they walk through and discuss the lessons learned in 2016 during this webinar scheduled for Thursday, December 8th, at 11 a.m. EDT.

Topics include:

Elections teach us about the uncertainty of even the most carefully prepared forecasts.

The former growth star, Intermodal, ran into trouble in 2016. What changed?

Rail carload started the year very weak. Can it finish on better footing?

2016 was not a big year of regulatory change, but much is happening below the surface.

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