CarrierDirect Executives to Explore Inconsistencies in Global Economy and its Impact on Freight Market in Conference Call Hosted by Stifel Capital Markets
Online PR News – 09-March-2016 – Chicago – Executives from CarrierDirect, a highly regarded provider of consulting services to transportation and logistics corporations, will present on the topics explored in the company’s most recent market perspective, “Change is the Only Constant,” during a conference call hosted and moderated by John Larkin, of Stifel Capital Markets, on Friday, March 11 at 11 a.m. EST.
Founder and CEO of CarrierDirect, Jett McCandless and Executive Vice President of CarrierDirect, Erik Malin will provide an in-depth look at global economic and industry trends, and their projected impacts on freight markets. Some of the trends that will be discussed include:
• Mixed labor market indicators and depressed global oil prices are a tribute to the almost manic market conditions, which is leading many economists to predict only modest growth, at best.
• Millennials will be a major force for employers to adjust to, but the rewards will be substantially higher for those who embrace the new workforce.
• Asset-backed logistics providers will need to develop sophisticated enterprise strategies to maintain relevancy in the next 5-10 years
“This perspective, in particular, presents eye opening revelations about the freight industry and how the inevitable changes occurring in the economy, and in the workforce, will affect what we know about our business practices today,” said McCandless. “We are excited to present these findings, among others during Friday’s conference call and hope it helps leaders better navigate the complex business environment.”
