FTR to hold free State of Freight webinar

As the freight transportation industry gears up for 2016, FTR's truck and transportation expert Noël Perry will provide a broad overview of the freight outlook for 2016 for the three major heavy freight modes – truck, rail and barge during a free State of Freight webinar scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 14 at 11 a.m. EDT.

Perry will explore a variety of topics including the base case forecast for economy and modal volume, capacity utilization for truck, pricing for truck and rail, and upside and downside risk.

Perry will explain why he is betting the under on 2016 forecast risks. “The year should be relatively stable, but most of the risks are downside, with the chance of something nasty growing as the year ages.”

 This is a 30-minute webinar moderated by Jonathan Starks, chief operations officer for FTR. Participant Q&A session will be held after the presentation.

This webinar is free for all participants. Registration is required prior to webinar date and can be completed here.
