Changes and Challenges Around the World: De-Globalization & the Threat of Recession
Moderator: Adrian Gonzalez

The challenging 2018 transportation market — coupled with the US-China trade war, Brexit, and other risks and uncertainties — has taught shippers an important lesson: the best way to navigate whatever lies ahead is to stay ahead of the curve instead of finding yourself behind it. What does it take to stay ahead of the curve? In this interactive presentation and discussion, Adrian will share the key capabilities that differentiate the leaders from the laggards (hint: they include visibility, digital transformation, and relationships) and he will provide advice on how to get started.
