At the end of each year, I like to take stock of the major freight transportation stories of the past twelve months and look ahead to the major industry trends in the coming year. The two blogs that I write are prepared from my perspective as a consultant to shippers and carriers.
This year I would like to hear from you. Those of you who follow this blog observe trends in your segment of the industry. Please take a minute to share them with me. Please post them on this blog or send a private e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to select any major trend or trends that are having or will have a major impact on our industry, whether regulatory, economic, technological, demographic, consumer behavior, environmental, modal shifts or business strategy.
To broaden the range of inputs and perspectives, I will also post this request on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. In the coming weeks I will be preparing my two lists. The lists will include a blend of my observations and yours. Look for these two blogs in mid-December. Thank you to those of you who take the time to share your observations with me.
