Pandemic lockdowns are easing and freight levels are increasing, but the COVID-19 virus is still out there, and it may take a while for the economy to recover. What does the future hold for our country’s economy and the trucking industry?

That’s what a special Heavy Duty Trucking webinar will explore on Wednesday, June 24, at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT.

This free webinar will explore research, economic indicators, and insights that can help fleets understand the impact of the pandemic and where we go from here.

Heavy Duty Trucking Editor in Chief Deborah Lockridge will present HDT research on how fleets have been managing the pandemic. She’ll lead a discussion with panelists Jeff Kauffman, managing director for Loop Capital Markets and author of the bimonthly HDT column Behind the Numbers, and Charles Simpson, Vice President of Strategic Intelligence for truckload giant U.S. Xpress.
