FTR Schedules State of Freight Webinar: Freight Market Outlook

FTR's State of Freight webinar "Freight Market Outlook" will provide an overview of what to expect in 2016 in the truck, rail and barge industries.


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 this complimentary State of Freight webinar scheduled for Thursday, January 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. A 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 online.
