This new series will explore the resurgence of transportation within the supply chain. Recent events have positioned transportation at the forefront of supply chain strategy. Market volatility caused by the pandemic, the subsequent economic downturn, and severe weather events have converged to cause enormous stress on all modes of transportation.
We will explore the various disruptions that occurred and how shippers and transportation providers are pivoting to overcome obstacles and clear the road for smoother operations.

Delivered by Truckstop.com, this presentation focuses on how the trillion-dollar US Freight Transportation Marketplace impacts the Global Supply Chain, the US Economy and US consumer.
