  • The FTR sessions Trucking Outlook, Truck & Trailer Outlook, Rail & Intermodal Outlook and Rail Equipment Outlook offer comprehensive views of all aspects of freight transport.
  • 10 highlighted sessions from this year’s conference agenda with guest speakers sharing their insights on the impact of the pandemic on the industry.
  • Opportunity to participate in a Q&A with the speakers.
