2021 U.S. Transportation Market Outlook

Throughout the pandemic, the Transportation industry served as the lifeblood of the U.S. economy, delivering a steady stream of essential goods to meet the demands of consumers sequestered in their homes.

And now, a little more than a year after the pandemic triggered one of the steepest economic declines in history, the speed of the rebound has been so startlingly swift that many companies in the Transportation industry are struggling to keep up.

The 2021 U.S. Transportation Market Outlook will help you put your transportation clients in a better position, with key information and insights:

  • View of overall market conditions, including post-COVID renewal cycle
  • Deep dive into the trucking, intermodal container, public auto and business auto segments
  • Insights into emerging issues, including driver shortage, cyber risks, autonomous vehicles, cargo theft, last mile delivery and the effect of raising minimum liability limits
