Bob Costello, senior vice president and chief economist at the American Trucking Associations, is back by popular demand to provide insight into the latest on the future of the trucking industry at The NATSO Show.

Costello will discuss the economic factors that will influence the trucking industry throughout the coming year and how it will affect truckstop and travel plaza operators. 

Costello manages all of ATA's collection, analysis and dissemination of trucking economic information. This includes several monthly trucking economic indicators, motor carrier financial and operating data, an annual freight transportation forecast, driver wage studies, weekly diesel fuel price and economic reports, and a yearly trucking almanac. Bob also conducts economic analyses of proposed regulations and legislation affecting the trucking industry.

He is often cited in the news media as an expert on trucking economics, including the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, CNBC, and National Public Radio. Costello has testified at congressional hearings on trucking issues.

Registration is now open. Early-bird pricing is available until December 12. NATSO members can register online or by contacting Kimberly Roberts. Suppliers interested in participating as an exhibitor or sponsor should contact Susan Taylor. For more information about The NATSO Show, visit www.natsoshow.org.
