    Inland Think Tank: Dallas-Fort Worth

    Inland Think Tanks provide an opportunity for attendees to participate in an informal, roundtable-like setting to discuss international intermodal, also known as IPI. It’s also an opportunity for shippers, truckers, railroads, and chassis lessors to meet in a single space to discuss hyperlocal issues — in this case, Dallas-Fort Worth — and build new relationships. While our 30-minute think tanks have moderators, attendees should come prepared to share their experiences on IPI. The think tanks will focus on preparing now for the next rebound in ocean container volume. What lessons can be learned from the last two years that can be applied to the future? How can all stakeholders accept their role in supply chain congestion 2021 and 2022, learn from it, and adjust? And what are the realistic and unrealistic expectations for fluidity in the supply chain when volumes rebound? These think tanks will explore these questions with the participation and interaction of conference attendees.
