NEW PLYMOUTH, Idaho — Noël Perry, Truckstop.com's chief economist has launched a new website, Transport Futures.
The site will serve as Perry's platform to share industry insights about the wide variety of transport issues that cross his desk.
A key feature of Perry's new site is his blog, The Transport Navigator.
Blog subscribers will not need to wait for monthly publishing schedules to see analysis of breaking stories.
“If it moves, I'm watching it — and thinking deeply about it. I wanted a place where I could share information as soon as good data is available, allowing my readers to react to market pressures right now,” Perry said. “I've always been fascinated by the radical changes that have revolutionized the transportation industry. My choice in naming my new site Transport Futures is a pointed reminder of that interest."
Noël will continue his affiliation with Truckstop.com, using the data he gleans from this relationship in his thought leadership content.
The Transport Navigator is an enhanced version of his long-running newsletter, “State of Freight” published by FTR Intelligence, although Perry is no longer associated with FTR.
Perry said his new work will reflect the additional time and creative freedom he now has to devote to his unique brand of analysis and will be available exclusively through Transport Futures.
Perry's current analysis, titled “Declare Victory at Your Own Risk,” is the lead contribution to his new blog.
Subscribers will learn what those risks are along with a steady stream of Perry's other writing.
You can find this and other offerings from Transport Futures on the web at www.transportfutures.net.
“Watch, especially, for publication of a book-length handing of the radical changes that will revolutionize transportation and supplychain design over the next 20 years,” Perry said.
Truckstop.com is a load board and freight marketplace for drivers to find loads at the best rates, brokers to increase capacity, and shippers to manage freight.
Transport Futures is a North American heavy freight consulting firm headed by Perry. Transport Futures deals with all matters of freight transport within North America, with special emphasis on truckload, rail, intermodal and domestic water markets. Although independent, Transport Futures has a close relationship with Truckstop.com.
In addition, it has aligned with Susan Collins of the marketing firm 63rd & Eliot to distribute its work more effectively within the industry.
