Logistics and Distribution Peer Group Web Meeting 

Transportation Outlook: Rates, Capacity and Market Strategies to Mitigate Cost 
September 28, 2021 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM 
Learn where member company Schneider National anticipates rates and capacity are headed this fall and into 2022 and share insights and trends with other UWEBC members. 

With logistics costs continuing to climb in 2021 - assuming capacity is even available - there is much uncertainty for Logistics leaders when it comes to forecasting the cost to move freight. Whether you are heading into your peak shipping season or starting to feel the impacts of retail peak on your supply chain, what will fall look like in terms of rates and capacity, and are there any ways to offset these increasing costs?

UWEBC member company Schneider National will lead a discussion on the current state of trucking in the US including capacity and pricing future across truckload (Asset and Spot), LTL and other transportation issues affecting your business. Will capacity level out or will further constraints pop up? Schneider will share some of their market insights, plus market strategies to mitigate cost pressures. We will also get input from you, our members on how you are viewing the market for Fall 2021 and current predictions for 2022.
