    Moving Breakbulk Inland: Rerouting, Finding Capacity, and Fending Off Congestion in 2021

    Rerouting, port congestion, skyrocketing rates, and truck, equipment, and driver shortages are complicating the inland movement of project and breakbulk cargo in the US. How are shippers, project forwarders, and service providers adapting in this complex environment, and what can shippers do to ensure they have capacity when they need it and at a bearable cost? William Cassidy, the JOC's senior trucking editor, will chair this timely session.
