Industry Optimism Abounds at ACT Seminar

Despite an unpredictable economy, participants at an ACT Research Co. seminar remained optimistic about the commercial vehicle and transportation industries.

The seminar in Columbus, Indiana, was attended by personnel from more than 100 companies, some of whom went on to tour a large package consolidation hub and intermodal facilities in Chicago.

Attendees for the most part indicated that their businesses were on solid footing, and they remained confident despite economic uncertainty.

“There is concern about the economy,” stated Ken Vieth, ACT’s senior partner and general manager. “The impression that we got from attendees is that we will get through this period of uncertainty. Those in the intermodal business, especially, are still quite positive.”

ACT holds two seminars each year for its Outlook subscribers. The next seminar, #46, will be held March 20-22, 2012.
