"The best conference yet.  Conveyed a definite sense of urgency around a transformational period for freight transportation.  Wish all of our customers and many of our employees could have heard much of the content.  We will be sharing information internally and are likely to be contacting FTR about the possibility of presenting a webinar for some of our key customers."
