Todd Tranausky Quote on Key Issues in Transportation

“As the economy recovers, the July State of Freight webinar examines what that recovery means for the transportation market. A lot of uncertainty remains related to COVID-19 and the U.S. political situation, but we will try to put some bands around how we see things progressing and what the risk factors are for transportation in the months ahead.”

Avery Vise Quote on Key Issues in Transportation“Recovery from the contraction in March and April has been encouraging, but it is unclear how sustained the improvement will be, especially after generous unemployment benefits end and businesses exhaust their Paycheck Protection Program funds. Our goal with this webinar is to isolate the key dynamics related to freight transportation and understand the progress toward a stable environment.”
