“The past year has presented unprecedented challenges for the supply chain with freight volume up and capacity down,” said Christian Beatty, Senior Marketing Manager at HaulSuite. “We’ve gathered LTL Titans across the field who have spent their entire lives moving freight but have never seen a freight environment like the one we have today. Attendees will have the chance to hear first-hand the issues facing these leaders’ businesses and how they work to overcome these challenges, using innovative technology and processes.”
When increasing capacity is not easy, LTL carriers must adapt to find the capacity hidden within the existing network operations. In this free web panel, leaders from across the industry will discuss how they are approaching capacity challenges, and despite these challenges, they are advancing the industry. Don't miss this opportunity to learn, share, grow, and change the industry together. A live fifteen-minute Q&A period will follow the panel discussion, where attendees can ask questions of the distinguished panelists.
