The Outlook for Trucking

Trucking is coming off perhaps its best year in history. What does 2019 have in store for the trucking sector? FTR will review the state of trucking and the trends in the key areas of capacity, demand, and pricing. It is also time to consider the regulatory environment and what changes it might bring for 2019 and beyond.
Highlights include:

  • We will take a detailed look at the growth in truck capacity for 2019.
  • Review of the FTR Freight•cast™ outlook for freight demand in a slowing economy.
  • FTR Expert discussion over the potential for additional growth in truck rates.
  • A look at the regulatory agenda and its impacts, as well as the market risks that are increasing in 2019.

This is a thirty-minute webinar presented by Avery Vise, VP of Trucking at FTR, and moderated by Jonathan Starks, FTR’s Chief Intelligence Officer. Participant Q&A session will be held after the presentation.
“A year ago, there wasn’t much more to say than that it was a highly pro-carrier environment that would last throughout the year,” says Avery Vise, FTR’s VP of Trucking. “The picture is cloudier in early 2019 with a more balanced market between carriers and shippers. This webinar will consider where we stand today and the factors to watch this year and beyond.”
