Although some logistics costs and disruptions have minimized in recent months, there is always 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 areas like visibility, technology, optimization?

UWEBC member company Schneider will host a discussion at their new innovation center near Green Bay ("The Grove"), 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.
