The FTR team has announced the release of the Intermodal Dash powered by FTR’s new Intel•cast platform. The Intermodal Dash will become available for access beginning Oct. 1. The platform features web-based interactive features and marks a shift to a more technologically advanced system for utilizing transportation intelligence. “This really is us getting you information when you want it and how you want it. 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,” said Eric Starks, chairman and chief executive officer of FTR.
The Intel•cast platform builds on FTR’s Freight•cast model for forecasting freight demand. Intel•cast allows subscribers to dynamically adjust data variables and view the result immediately. Charts and graphs are easily tailored for unique interests to allow for quick business intelligence, FTR explained. Intel•cast allows subscribers to search FTR’s expert commentary, which will now be published as it becomes available to provide business intelligence faster than ever.
The Intermodal Dash is the first in the FTR Freight Focus Series to be added to the Intel•cast platform. The Intermodal Dash provides comprehensive data and insights into the intermodal market place. All of the data and commentary subscribers have relied on FTR to provide will still be available in the Intermodal Dash, and several new features will be immediately available. The Intermodal Dash is available for purchase with access beginning on Oct. 1. FTR will be moving additional Freight Focus Series subscriptions to the Intel•Cast platform throughout the next year to allow FTR subscribers access to the industry’s premier forecast, data and expert commentary in one digital platform.
