    From Ocean to Inland: Breaking the Bottlenecks

    Never have the links between ocean and surface transportation been revealed so clearly as in the 2021-2022 supply chain debacle. Importers and exporters are finding that bottlenecks only begin at seaports and extend far inland. In fact, disruption ripples back and forth between ports and inland pain points, magnifying problems and adding to transportation costs. This session will unravel the difficulties shippers are having getting goods to and from ports via surface transportation, primarily trucking. We will examine where those bottlenecks beyond the ports are, how they affect each other, and what can be done to fix them, as well as the outlook for pricing from ocean shipping to the US truckload and LTL markets.
