    Inland Market Report: The Growing Inland Network

    Freight volumes at inland ports have exploded in recent years, and port authorities are engaged in expansion and planning for more. From the Southeast to the West Coast, potential sites are being explored and developed, and that’s shifting how goods move in North America. The Southwest plays a role, too, as more freight moves north from Mexico, and as border crossings such as Laredo become increasingly crowded. This session will address the following questions and more:

    • Which inland ports are hottest in terms of freight volume and demand?

    • Where are new facilities being built, and how tight is capacity?

    • How is the growth of new distribution hotspots changing freight flows?

    • What regions will see the most investment in 2025 and beyond?
