Our November 2022 speaker was Jason Hilsenbeck, owner of LoadMatch & Drayage.com websites. He gave the "Intermodal Update - Part 2" Jason Hilsenbeck - Intermodal News Speaker
Around 250 people attended, even Jeff Silver (Backhaulers/Coyote fame) was there. A very good night of networking indeed.
Drayage Demand Declining (pg7)
Drayage Trucking Stats (pg18)
Drayage Driver Bill of Rights (pg21)
Where did the Chassis go? (pg26)
Why Railroads will never change (pg28)

The most important part from presentation: if there are appox 70,000 combined pool ocean chassis in Chicago, and all those dropped containers came back just 1 day faster, it would feel like another 10,000 chassis were available. Second most important point: the shortage of Lift Machines and Labor working in the rail terminals is completely separate issue from shortage of chassis. The # of hours drivers spend waiting for lifts when the driver actually has a chassis is ridiculous.

August 2nd, 2019, we reserved the entire brand-new Odyssey River Cruise boat. Food was amazing, prepared fresh onboard, with premium open bar. This is a new service that glides up the North Branch of the Chicago river, then down the South Branch then back to Michigan Ave, a very smooth ride compared to our previous events out on the lake.
