Managing Freight Market Volatility Risk: Are Freight Futures Right For You?

11/01/2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

What are Trucking Freight Futures and how can they help my business? Reserve your spot in this informative and complimentary webinar to learn more.
The trucking industry is a $726B industry, which is 30% bigger than oil, natural gas and coal combined, and twice the size of the agricultural market. If a product is going somewhere in the U.S., 7 out of 10 times it is getting there on a truck. According to the American Trucking Associations, over 80% of the nation’s freight bill became revenue for the trucking industry – making trucking is one of the largest industries in the U.S.

Freight markets are constantly evolving due to digitization, regulations, cyclical and secular trends. Given the volatile nature and sheer size of the trucking industry, Trucking Freight Futures are a natural fit for this market. They will provide an exciting new form of risk management for businesses with exposure to trucking spot rate volatility, or for speculators that are interested in investing in a new market.
