Latest Status of Natural Gas in Heavy Trucks

We have now had almost a full year since the Hours Of Service changes brought the truckload market to the brink of crisis.  The bad winter gave us an introductory taste of what happens when additional pressures are added.  Customers struggle to find trucks and spot rate jump up.  The winter is over but other forces are at work and investors, carriers, shippers and equipment manufacturers are searching for answers.  Is this the year when the long-forecast driver shortage finally forces structural change?  Will the economy provide an extra bump of growth or will it recede as it frequently does late in a recovery?  Will the West Coast dock workers strike snarl the system even more?  In this webinar, Noel Perry will give the latest outlook for all the major issues, backed up with data and presented in language that practitioners can understand.  

This session will provide answers to these important questions:

  • What is the freight multiplier on GDP and why is it so important in 2014?
  • Why should U.S. supply chain managers watch global credit markets?
  • What is the first cut analysis of the 2015 election?
  • Why you can forget about fuel for a change?
