Navigating New Realities: Peak Shipping Season Intermodal Outlook

08/23/2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Economic growth, the rapid acceleration of e-commerce and changing consumer expectations have dramatically changed the American shipping industry. In fact, the peak shipping season has been impacted by a consistent need to replenish inventories (driven primarily by consumers who require shorter delivery windows). To help beneficial cargo owners and shipping companies across America navigate this new 24/7/365 phenomenon, American Shipper has gathered a team of shipping experts for an informative, one-hour webinar to explore the history of the traditional peak shipping season while acknowledging that e-commerce growth has challenged transportation companies to think differently. As LTL shipments continue to grow, find out how you can keep up, keep your customers happy and grow your business. Listeners will also:
Learn how e-commerce has changed the shipping landscape
Get insightful statistics around US shipping capacity growth
Hear how government regulations like ELDs have impacted supply chains
Learn how intermodal seamlessly integrates rail, road and water transportation
Hear how supply chain stakeholders are preparing for the holiday peak shipping season
