The list of speakers is already impressive, and it continues to grow for the 2011 "Where Freight Matters" conference, hosted by FTR Associates Sept. 13-15 in Indianapolis, Ind.

Freight demand is growing, but now the economic recovery is sputtering. Transportation companies have "right-sized" during the downturn and now face difficult investment decisions just as the economy injects new uncertainty into the equation. Meanwhile, an extensive slate of new government regulations promises to up-end the status quo, raising more questions and risks. In order to understand the turbulent present and what the transport future may bring, you should plan to attend this year's conference.

The premier forecasting conference for the freight transportation industry has something planned for everyone involved in moving goods across the country and around the world. Scheduled industry outlook sessions include such topics as: Economy, Truck, Rail & Barge, Intermodal & Maritime, Legislative, Shippers, Rail Equipment, Commercial Vehicle Equipment, and more.

Over 40 speakers and panelists from carriers, shippers, Wall Street, FTR's forecasting staff and others are on the agenda. They include;

Chris Kravis, Chief Intermodal Officer, Hub Group

George Grossardt, VP & GM, Schneider National Bulk Carriers

Stephan Loeb, VP Business Development, Watco Companies

Paul Forward, Managing Director, Stifel Nicolaus

Steve Rubin, Chairman Intermodal Association of North American
