How many times as a transportation professional have you thought about truly owning your own truck and having the freedom to make your own decisions, control your own destiny and create your own opportunities? Amanda Cox and her husband Clint pondered this question after a few lease purchase experiences left them wanting more for themselves and their business. To satisfy their desire to be truck owners, the Cox’s wound up getting an MBA (Much Better Alternative) to truck finance and taking ES’s PTO (Path to Ownership). Now, they’re sharing their story with Spotlight News to help inform others that there is opportunity and true truck ownership if you know where to drive your business.
During last November’s Women in Trucking’s Accelerate! conference in Kansas City, Ellen Voie, WIT’s President and CEO, along with Expediter Services issued a challenge to the trucking industry to create 150 women-owned businesses over the next twelve months. We are excited to announce that the challenge is being met! (Read more about the WIT/ES 150 women-owned business challenge here.)
