FTR’s conference was unlike most transportation conferences I’ve attended. This conference is grounded in data and is tailored for those needing, generating, or analyzing data to improve the business.
I would say that the annual FTR conference is THE event for learning more about the state of the transportation industry and what is around the corner while meeting some new and old friends. The FTR crew do a great job of keeping you engaged and entertained while providing valuable insight into your business.
The speakers brought from various industries and backgrounds provides a wide perspective on what is happening in the transportation industry and information on current events that affect the industry as a whole.
This was my first year attending the conference. From a content standpoint, this was the most informative conference that I’ve ever attended. If a fraction of the networking meeting that I had pan out, it’s a potential gold mine.

FTR does an excellent job of keeping the industry abreast of the macro economic forecast, but more importantly the transportation industry forecast. Their insights are invaluable for every industry participant from OEM to dealer and from fleet manager to association professional.
The FTR conference is a high quality, information intense 3 days that provides a great introduction to freight transportation for novices, an update on the markets for decision-making and lots of social interaction in an interesting city and venue.
The multiple content channels were great. The Q&A was handled well and app technology worked very well. The networking and size of the conference allowed many folks to interact and I thought the FTR staff did a fantastic job of talking with people and helping make sure the conference went smoothly.
FTR offers insight into the freight & transportation market from the 30,000 foot level and addresses much of the ground-level details to have a greater understanding of our industry.
