The future success of renewable energy and electric vehicles for both consumer markets and utility-scale markets is going to depend largely on the ability to store that energy.However, current battery storage technologies are expensive, only suitable for short-term back-up, frequency regulation of the grid, and micro-grid applications. There is also the challenge around stability (some are prone to explode), the longevity of the units, and environmental disposal of the used products.
Many of the goods imported into the U.S. rely on intricate, finely-tuned, international supply chains. When the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on international supply networks that caused shortages, price increases, and instilled plenty of worry in consumers, it also set in motion more conversation about the emerging future of supply chains. But how did we get here? In this webinar, participants will learn more about the past, present, and future of supply chains and freight systems, including how supply chains have changed over time, evolving types of freight providers, autonomous freight advancements, and public policy changes. The presentation, which is also the TRB 2022 Deen Lecture, will be led by Anne Strauss-Wieder and discussion will be facilitated by Lillian Borrone.

Transportation Marketing and Sales Association
In today’s ultra-competitive global transportation market, it’s imperative that you (as a transportation solution provider) know exactly who you’re selling to. This may sound simple, but it isn’t easy.Focusing your message and value proposition on the correct buyers is more difficult than ever. Each year, the transportation industry suddenly changes. In the past, freight purchasing decisions were left to one buyer (often the dock or warehouse employee), and we focused our selling time there. However, as companies seek total supply chain solutions, they require several new “buyers” into the once simple decision making process.
