Logistics and Distribution Peer Group Hybrid Meeting 

Transportation Industry Update: Capacity, Pricing and Sustainability 
November 03, 2022 09:00 AM - 02:00 PM 
Learn from member company Schneider where industry analysts anticipate the transportation industry is headed this fall and into 2023 and share insights and trends with other UWEBC members. 

With continual supply chain disruptions - from pending rail strikes to hurricanes - there is much uncertainty for Logistics leaders when it comes to forecasting the cost to move freight and how to best optimize your network. Whether you are heading into your peak shipping season or starting to feel the impacts of retail peak on your supply chain, what will the balance of the year look like in terms of capacity and pricing, and where is the transportation industry headed in terms of visibility and sustainability?

UWEBC member company Schneider will host a discussion at their headquarters in Green Bay on the current state of trucking in the US including what industry analysts are saying about capacity and pricing across truckload (Asset and Spot), LTL and other transportation topics that impact your business. Schneider will share market insights, plus market strategies to mitigate cost pressures. We will also get input from you, our members on how you are viewing the market for Q4 2022 and current predictions for 2023.

Join us from 9am to 2pm in person at Schneider's Green Bay facility, or 9am to noon virtually to learn from the experiences of others and share your experiences with your peers!
