EXPO's Comprehensive,
Dynamic Education Program
Covers Intermodal Landscape

I

ntermodal Insights asked the moderators of the 2017 Intermodal EXPO panels to provide
their expert perspectives and observations on the sessions they are leading at this year's
event. Here are their comments, nearly all in their own words.

Intermodal FreightCast - John Larkin, Stifel
Nicolaus
The Intermodal FreightCast will touch on high level topics
such as the state of the nation's and world's economies, the
outlook for trade growth, a current view of the regulatory
landscape, and a sense of the supply/demand dynamics currently
playing out within each of the relevant transport modes. We will
also take a look at volume trends and forecasts for domestic and
international intermodal traffic and industry trends that could
contribute to intermodal capturing market share going forward.
Time permitting, we will also discuss the hot topics of
the day including Amazon's impact on supply chains, the
digitization of freight brokerage, labor supply, the potential for
autonomous trains and trucks, 3D printing, and automated/
flexible manufacturing. All in all, we hope to give attendees a
summary sense of the current
intermodal industry landscape
and provide a foundation
that will enable attendees
to get the most out of their
attendance at Intermodal
EXPO.
Alan Murphy, SeaIntel,
Speaker, commenting on
ocean carrier effects:
Container shipping lines
have endured an unprecedented six-year crisis which has seen
half of the top 20 carriers disappear in less than three years. In
the preceding 15 years, only two top-20 carriers left the market.
This session will explore whether a liner shipping recovery is
really just around the corner.

A Conversation with Uber Freight - Adriene
Bailey, Yusen Logistics
Bill Driegert, director of Uber Freight, making his first-ever
appearance at a transportation conference, will discuss the
company's goals and strategy in a one-on-one conversation with
Adriene Bailey. This event is especially timely as technological

advancements offer new productivity and market opportunities
for intermodal. There have been dozens - or more - efforts
that some have labeled "Uber for Freight." So far, the success of
those efforts has been mixed, at best, and their involvement in
intermodal has been virtually non-existent. Come to this session
and find out from the source how Uber plans to successfully
navigate the world of freight and how their experience with their
ride-sharing business will transfer value to the new venture.

Cloud-Based Solutions to Intermodal
Challenges - Jennifer Schopfer, GE
Transportation
The future of transportation is digital. No matter where
you fit in the supply chain, there is something to learn about
how cloud-based solutions are delivering impact to intermodal
operations today and how
you can position yourself
for the future. As digital, or
"cloud-based," solutions are
optimizing intermodal assets
and operations, our industry
is transforming at a pace and
scale unlike anything we've
seen.
While the opportunities
for improvements across
efficiency, safety and velocity are massive, so too is the need to
understand the fundamentals that will enable your organization's
success. In order to unlock the potential of this new and
emerging technology to enhance productivity, companies need to
demonstrate readiness across multiple fronts, from knowledge
of what products and capabilities exist in the market, to how to
structure and access their internal systems, to ensuring a culture
of collaboration in their teams.
In "Cloud-Based Solutions to Intermodal Challenges: Part I,"
we'll explore these dynamics from a maritime perspective.
"Cloud-Based Solutions to Intermodal Challenges: Part II"
will delve more into the landside ecosystem.
