Navigating New Realities: Peak Shipping Season Intermodal Outlook
When: August 23, 2018, 2PM EDT
Economic growth, the rapid acceleration of e-commerce and changing consumer expectations have dramatically changed the American shipping industry. In fact, the seasonal peak shipping season has been impacted by a consistent need to replenish inventories -- driven primarily by consumers who require shortened delivery windows. To help beneficial cargo owners and shipping companies across America navigate this new 24/7/365 phenomenon, American Shipper has gathered a team of shipping experts from BNSF, Alliance Shippers, and FreightWaves.

We'll explore the history of the traditional peak shipping season while acknowledging that e-commerce growth has challenged transportation companies to think differently. As LTL shipments continue to grow, find out how you can keep up, keep your customers happy and grow your business. 

This webinar will cover:
  • Learn how e-commerce has changed the shipping landscape 
  • Get insightful statistics of U.S. shipping capacity growth
  • Hear how government regulations like ELDs have impacted supply chains
  • Learn how intermodal seamlessly integrates rail, road and water transportation
