President-elect Donald Trump and new faces in the 115th Congress, along with the evolution of the EU and other political forces, will greatly influence the world of cargo transportation. This panel will discuss how the new political landscape could impact U.S. trade and trade deals; help or hurt declining and emerging world markets; affect funding for transportation infrastructure projects; and potentially transform the industry.

The New Political Landscape is part of a series of panel discussions and keynote presentations at the conference addressing issues common to logistics and intermodal decision makers. Registration is now open for the conference, which will be held at the World Golf Village Renaissance Resort in St. Augustine, Fla.

The three-day event includes:
