Progressive Railroading on Sept. 26 will host a virtual summit, "North American Freight Rail: Unpacking 2023 Trends."

The program will feature an overview of the freight-rail market's journey from the beginning of the year to the present, as well as a look into what the final quarter of 2023 may hold.

Featured presenters will be Adriene Bailey, a partner at Oliver Wyman who leads the North American rail sector; and Tony Hatch, an independent transportation analyst and consultant. Hatch also is the program consultant for Progressive Railroading’s RailTrends® conference.

Bailey will share her insights into the dynamic changes within freight rail, shedding light on the industry’s strategic shift toward a growth-oriented agenda.

Hatch's presentation will address the economy’s impact on freight-railroad growth, labor and demand; the shifting regulatory climate; the elevated profiles of short lines and regionals; and recent changes in rail-industry leadership.

The summit will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The cost to attend is $79, but it's free to RailPrime members. The zoom registration link is available here. The paid registration link is available here.
