FTR Announcement of Personnel Changes

FTR Transportation Intelligence announces the conclusion of their business relationships with Noël Perry, Principle of Transportation Economics, and Lawrence Gross, President of Gross Transportation Consulting. Perry has served as transportation economist with FTR for the last 10 years. Mr. Gross has served as the rail and intermodal expert at FTR since 2009. Perry and Gross will continue with FTR through December 2017 to ensure a smooth and successful transition.

Eric Starks, CEO and Chairman of the Board, commented, “On behalf of the FTR team, I want to thank Noël and Larry for their tireless work and the analytical insights they brought to FTR.

“I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing Noël for my entire career in freight transportation. He has broadened my understanding of freight forecasting and the freight markets. He has the unique perspective of someone who started out working on the docks, then worked his way to the top of the industry. Larry was influential in helping FTR translate the forecasting work we were doing into the intermodal and rail sectors. He has been a vital member of the intermodal community, creating educational content and acting as a key source of intermodal information for the industry. Noël’s and Larry’s perspectives have always been valuable, and I thank them for their contributions to FTR.”
