FTR announces registration open for 13th annual Transportation Conference

May 11, 2017

Early-bird registration is open for FTR’s 13th Annual Transportation Conference scheduled for September 12-14 in Indianapolis, IN.

Presentations and panel discussions will cover the economy, freight demand, competition between modes, carrier and shipper behavior, and demand for new transport equipment.

This comprehensive conference offers content channels to help guide attendees towards the sessions most appropriate to their business needs. The four channels are State of Freight, Shippers, Brokers, & Carriers, Rail Equipment, and Truck & Trailer Equipment. Over seventy industry thought leaders will present on current topics within each of these tracks.

FTR will present a new lineup on Tuesday to kick off the conference. Entitled “Freightology,” the afternoon will be filled with quick hitting presentations by industry thought leaders exploring transformative ideas in the freight transportation sector. The 20 minute presentations will provide attendees with thought provoking information, ideas, and innovations.

“As an industry, we need to step back and ask the question, where are we headed?” said Eric Starks, CEO of FTR. “It’s easy to get stuck in the day-to-day, even if your job is forecasting. Forecasts are based on assumptions. Big changes upend our assumptions and make planning for the future more difficult.”
