FTR Adds Intermodal Insights to Web-Based Platform

Freight-industry research firm FTR announced the release of its Intermodal Dash, intended to deliver data and insights into the intermodal market place via the company’s new web-based forecasting platform Intelcast.

The Intermodal Dash will be available for purchase with access beginning Oct. 1.

FTR will be moving additional Freight Focus Series subscriptions to the Intelcast platform throughout the next year to allow FTR subscribers access to the industry’s premier forecast, data and expert commentary in one digital platform, according to the Bloomington, Ind.-based company.

“This really is us getting you information when you want it and how you want it,” Eric Starks, chairman and CEO of FTR, said in a statement. “When we start talking about forecasting, data needs and content, it gets overwhelming. Our job is to be able to put it in your hands so that you can use it.”
