Emerging Freight Transportation Services

    New transportation services are emerging that may transform the freight transportation industry in the coming years. In this track, three industry leaders will discuss three “new” services that have the potential to make a significant impact. One speaker will introduce a freight financial clearing house and capacity exchange for shippers seeking to lock in capacity and for carriers wishing to sell fixed capacity contracts. A second speaker will outline potential solutions offered by the Uber model to such problems as the misallocation and/or unemployment of trucking resources, (i.e. trucks moving empty, potential for overall cost efficiency, improved transparency and quality control across supply chains). The third speaker will outline a newly created free operations, dispatch and tracking platform for all freight carriers in the US, Mexico and Canada. This track will introduce you to some of the “hot” technologies and new services that could have major impacts in North America freight markets.
