“Welcome to the 2016 FTR Conference website! This year we will continue to bring together many of the brightest thought leaders in the transportation industry. There are big changes on the horizon for freight transportation, and we are proud to help lead discussions on how companies are dealing with these changes. Not only will attendees be able to network with transportation professionals from all parts of the supply chain, but they will return from the conference with actionable information for their businesses.”



This year’s conference will deliver even more focused content via four content channels over two days. After initial, stage setting sessions on the State of Freight (overall economy and freight environment) the morning of day one, concurrent sessions begin. These content channels include: Shippers, Carriers & Brokers, Truck & Trailer Equipment, and Rail Equipment.

Please click on the links above to view the full suite of sessions offered under each content channel. These channels are just guides to help you maximize the conference. Choose a channel that fits you, or choose a different session every hour!
