Transportation 2017: The Science and Fiction of the Market
Featuring Keynote Speaker: Kevin Zweier, VP Transportation Practice, Chainalytics
Tuesday, April 25th 2017 @ 6:00 PM
Crowne Plaza – King of Prussia
2016 turned out to be a relatively soft transportation market. Capacity was readily available and transportation rates fell for most of the year. However, as we move into 2017, there are some concerning issues on the horizon – regulations, demographics, and macro-economic factors – that will surely make 2017 look a lot different than 2016.
In this session attendees will learn about recent developments in the North American Transportation market and what drives capacity and pricing. New and emerging trends and challenges for transportation will be reviewed; as well as, best practices from leading shippers on transportation procurement and what carriers are looking for when going after freight.
