Online PR News – 25-September-2015 – CHICAGO – – Executives from CarrierDirect, a highly regarded provider of advisory and tactical services to transportation and logistics corporations, will present on the topics explored in the company’s most recent market perspective, “Survival of the Smartest: Freight’s New Competitive Frontiers,” during a webcast hosted and moderated by Stifel Capital Markets on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 11 a.m. EST.

Founder and CEO of CarrierDirect, Jett McCandless will join Executive Vice President of CarrierDirect, Erik Malin during the webcast to provide an in-depth look at a few economic trends and their projected impacts on freight markets, including:

• The rapid shift in the status quo of global supply chain and trade patterns; especially with regards to trade partners and port volumes
• How changes in the marketplace will lead to a systemic shift in the normal freight flows across the nation at unprecedented levels
• Even though UPS now owns Coyote, UPS’ direct competitors will continue to invest in their relationship with Coyote because they benefit from the relationship
• Capacity may ebb and flow in the coming years, but the overarching reality is that the market will continue to tighten in the long run

“We are thrilled to be presenting the findings from our latest market perspective to transportation and financial industry professionals,” said Malin. “The changes in the freight marketplace have presented companies with both opportunities and challenges and we hope this presentation helps leaders better navigate the complex business environment.”
