  • An overview of freight transportation: Trucking, Rail, Water, Air, and Intermodal.
  • Reviewing basic freight rate terms, documentation, structures and trends. (How are freight charges determined)?
  • Understanding current issues in transportation markets--fuel surcharges, driver shortage, and industry economics.
  • Learning about traffic management strategies to reduce costs, including consolidation, modal options, negotiation, etc.
