Noël Perry is the rare economist to specialize in freight transportation. Starting on a loading dock in 1968, he followed his life's interest in senior research positions at Cummins Engine, CSX and Schneider National. Perry has been in private practice since 2008, working with clients in four modes and the shipper community. Frequently quoted in the national logistics media and heard on the speaking circuit, he is also chief economist for Truckstop.com, the leading load board. His blog, available on the Transport Futures website, covers the gamut of transport issues as they happen.
Noël holds degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University (Honors) and navigated USAF KC-135's during the Viet Nam war. He and his wife Ginny live in the historic iron mining village of Cornwall, PA. In his spare time, Noël is a gardener, singer, golfer, World War II historian and is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research.
