The world economy is entering a third straight year of broad-based growth, but many economists feel that a combination of rising interest rates and ongoing trade protectionism will continue to create unexpected turbulence—and usher in higher freight rates across the board.

Interest rates, OPEC's supply cuts, trade wars…how to prepare for the year ahead.

Join Logistics Management's Patrick Burnson as he hosts a panel of fuel, trade and logistics experts who share their insights on rate patterns across all major transport modes to help shippers prepare their freight transportation budget for the coming year.

Attend this session and gain insight on:

  • Capacity and rate forecasts across all modes (Oil & Fuel, Air Cargo, Ocean, Parcel, Rail/Intermodal and Trucking)
  • Where oil and diesel prices are headed and why
  • How to prepare for the impact of potential “trade wars”
  • Why it’s vital to invest in new technologies for competitive advantage in the future
