The Coyote Curve at Armstrong & Associate's 3PL Value Creation Summit 2018

Coyote's Chief Strategy Officer, Chris Pickett, is a featured speaker at the sixth annual 3PL Value Creation Summit North America 2018. This event, hosted by Armstrong & Associates Inc, is attended by C-level executives, investment community leaders, and technology innovators as they gather to analyze industry trends and assess the future of the logistics market.

Pickett will be discussing the Coyote Curve®Coyote’s proprietary data forecasting model—in the 3PL Market Trends & Executive Predictions panel on Thursday, October 18. He will address how the Coyote Curve can predict, with some observed certainty, where the truckload freight market is headed. Additionally, Pickett will discuss the three truckload market cycles, focusing on the elusive market capacity cycle, which he believes the key to understanding and properly navigating the US truckload market.

With access to Coyote’s large and growing centralized database of shipment transactions across its national network, we have found that the market is not as chaotic and unpredictable as it seems,” said Pickett.

“With respect to the Coyote Curve, I’ll share the forces that impact the delicate balance of supply and demand, how that information reveals an industry that operates in a rather predictable pattern, and what companies can do with that knowledge to better plan and budget for their company’s future.”

The event will be held at the Embassy Suites—Magnificent Mile in Chicago, Illinois from October 16-18, 2018. Coyote Chief Strategy Officer Chris Pickett will be speaking on the 3PL Market Trends & Executive Predictions Panel from 11:35 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, October 18.
