Webinar Gives ATA Members Insight Into Economic Trends

Free Recorded Download Available Through June for ATA Members Only

CLEVELAND--As a special, free offering to American Trucking Associations (ATA) members, a downloadable webinar is now available and aimed at giving a critical economic overview. It provides a closer look at the economy and factors influencing the transportation services industry. The webinar, originally conducted earlier this month, is sponsored by IDSC ExpertFuel from Trimble Transportation.

Featuring ATA Chief Economist and VP Bob Costello, the presentation covers long- and short-term economic outlooks as well as trucking supply issues, freight volumes and fuel price updates. Costello provides an overview of our current economic environment and what it means to companies in the transportation space. Costello is often cited in the news media as an expert on trucking economics, including the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, CNBC, FOX Business Channel, and National Public Radio. He has also testified at congressional hearings on trucking issues.

Sponsorship of this informative webinar was a natural fit, according to David McKinney, TMW vice president and assistant general manager. IDSC ExpertFuel is a business-class fuel purchase optimization solution designed to help truckload carriers control diesel fuel cost, improve long-haul fleet profitability and integrate with daily operations and dispatch including driver management.
