In an age of online shopping and next-day delivery, and with the recently expanded Panama Canal locks, the demands on intermodal facilities are only increasing -- as is the market.

Join John Vikerman to learn about the latest multimodal market trends, what makes port, rail, and logistics companies unique clients, and how you can position your firm for work within this market sector.

You'll leave this 60-minute session with a deep understanding of:

  • Mega-trends in global trade that influence the intermodal and logistics market
  • How the expected rapid growth of freight will impact infrastructure development
  • Effects of the widening of the Panama Canal on U.S. intermodal facilities
  • How automation is impacting the industry
  • The growth of inland and river ports
