Valerie McSween to present at the Shipper-Carrier Roundtable during the Surface Transportation Summit

Valerie McSween will present at the Shipper-Carrier Roundtable during the Surface Transportation Summit on October 13th, 2016.

Shippers are facing a soft economy, ever more demanding customers and a high US dollar this year as they grapple with developing efficient, low cost supply chains to bring their goods to market. These forces are putting added pressure on shippers to refine their logistics networks to keep freight costs under control. Motor carriers continue to face cost pressures as the search for qualified drivers, new government regulations and the requirement to purchase energy efficient trucks push freight rates higher.

While these issues are transforming the industry, new technologies, big data, the internet of things and multi-channel distribution are upending current business processes.

How should shippers and carriers react to the new set of forces shaping the transportation industry? A number of leading executives will participate in this round-table discussion. The moderator will lead the panel through a full analysis of the key issues shaping the industry.
