Expediter Services Celebrates Milestone & Announces Expansion of Women-Owned Business Initiative

November 15, 2022

During a presentation at the Women In Trucking Association’s Accelerate! Conference, Expediter Services Co-Founder & CEO Jason Williams announced that ES would be expanding the company’s program focused on assisting women in starting or expanding small businesses in the trucking industry.

Women In Trucking

DALLAS, Tex. – November 15, 2022 – Expediter Services (ES), a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, announced that the company has met its goal of creating and growing 150 women-owned businesses and is expanding the initiative to continue to finance and support women-owned businesses in the transportation industry. ES Co-Founder & CEO Jason Williams made the announcement during the Tuesday morning session of the Women In Trucking Association’s annual Accelerate! Conference being held in Dallas.

First announced at the 2017 Accelerate! Conference as a collaborative initiative between ES and the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), the 150 Business Challenge became a proven platform for the creation and expansion of women-owned businesses in trucking by utilizing the ES Path To Ownership program model as well as the support and resources available to members of the ES Community. In August 2022, the program reached its goal of 150 women-owned businesses assisted and the challenge had been achieved.

“From the time that we launched Expediter Services in 2006, part of our mission has always been to work with professional drivers who want to pursue the American Dream of owning their own business. Over the years, we have worked to create programs and support systems through our ES Community that are designed to level the playing field for anyone who has the desire and the commitment to start and operate their own trucking business,” said Williams.

“From the first time I met with the team at ES, it was clear to me that promoting diversity is in the DNA of ES. Creating opportunities that can empower women to become truck owners and start businesses in the trucking industry is part of what ES does, and that commitment is great for our industry,” said Ellen Voie, the President and CEO of the Women In Trucking Association.

As part of the program, ES offers participants competitive market-rate financing via the relationship lending model established through ES Equipment Finance. With the completion of the initial 150 Business Challenge and the decision to continue this effort through the Women-Owned Business Initiative, company leadership notes that ES has made an overall commitment of over $40 million to this program.

“The success of the 150 Business Challenge served as a great platform that further proved that women can be successful as business owners in trucking,” said Voie. “We applaud ES and the carriers in the ES Community for their continued commitment to this important program, and we are excited to see where ES can take this initiative as they continue to promote opportunities for women in the future.”

The program is designed to have the participants run under the authority of the motor carriers participating in the program through the ES Community. Truck ownership is typically achieved over a four-year period with an affordable payment plan and with program participants receiving consistent miles from the participating carriers as well as business support from the ES Team.

Forward Air, FedEx Custom Critical and Panther Premium Logistics (a service of ArcBest) were the first carriers within the ES Community to utilize the non-asset capacity being generated by the 150 Business Challenge. The program provides strong benefits for the participating carriers – offering them non-asset capacity committed to their respective fleets. These new women-owned businesses on wheels feature the ability to generate strong and consistent revenues, and this is especially true for team operations.

“We know there is more work to be done in opening the doors of business ownership for women in the trucking industry. This is why we are continuing the important work started through the 150 Business Challenge under our new ES Women-Owned Business Initiative. As always, we want to continue to be a trusted resource for making truck ownership and business creation opportunities for trucking professionals and for those people who are thinking about entering the industry,” said Williams.

ES has a landing page on the company’s website that details their commitment to assist in the creation of women-owned businesses available through the following link: https://essuccessintrucking.com/women-in-trucking/. Testimonials from program participants is one of the features of the landing page.

 “ES made it so easy for us. We came to their offices, signed the paperwork, got the truck and started rolling,” explained Colleen Umbehant, who entered the program in 2018. “That truck is exactly what we needed for our business. We’ve really been able to put our truck to work and I can’t say enough about the support that we have received from Panther and ES.”

“I made my final truck payment in May of this year, and it’s amazing to think that I now own this truck,” added Umbehant. “It has served us well and we do everything we can to take good care of it. One of things that has made a difference for me is that ES has always treated me like a business partner. They laid everything out for me from the beginning. Everything they told me was true and they have always stood behind what they said. Looking back on my experience with ES and their truck ownership program, I would highly recommend it for any woman or man who wants to start out on their own with their own truck. It was definitely the right move for me and my business.”

The website update includes call-out sections for people who are new to the trucking industry and to trucking professionals looking to start or expand a small business.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. September 1, 2022 Expediter Services (ES), a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, is pleased to announce the company has released a comprehensive update to its website, ESsuccessintrucking.com. The company’s new online platform features a fresh look that is reflective of the steady growth by ES throughout its 16-year history. The website also speaks directly to the continued expansion of service offerings that are tailored to help independent contract drivers, owner-operators, fleet owners and trucking entrepreneurs build and grow their respective trucking businesses.

Through the updates to ESsuccessintrucking.com, ES worked with its web design team to provide trucking professionals with a website that is easy to navigate and serves information in a concise fashion that is well presented on mobile devices, tablets and laptops. The front page of ESsuccessintrucking.com establishes the approach the company has taken with its new website by presenting the variety of offerings from ES and inviting website visitors to click and learn more.

In addition to presenting call-out sections for people who are new to the industry, to those trucking professionals looking to start their own small business or current owner-operators or fleet owners seeking to expand their current businesses, ESsuccessintrucking.com details the broad range of trucking support services offered through the company to program participants and members of the ES Community. Those trucking support services include truck financing, insurance solutions, legal services, operational support and an ongoing safety education along with a comprehensive discount and support program designed specifically for owner-operators, independent contract drivers and fleet owners to assist these trucking professionals in driving savings to the bottom line of their respective businesses.

“When we began our effort to make a comprehensive update to ESsuccessintrucking.com, we believed it was not only important to detail to the trucking industry and to the general marketplace who we are and what ES does as a company, but we also wanted to highlight the fact that ES has established a proven model that provides opportunities and services that can support contract drivers, owner-operators and fleet owners across the industry,” said ES CEO and Co-Founder Jason Williams.

“As we look at ESsuccessintrucking.com today, it speaks to how we have grown and expanded to meet a number of real needs in the trucking industry,” said Williams. “ESsuccessintrucking.com also shows how we have evolved as a company. When we started in 2006, we cut our teeth in the expediting sector of the trucking industry, which gave us a safe place to develop our model with some great carrier partners. Over the past few years, we’ve been able to build relationships that allowed us to move into opportunities within the truckload and less-than-truckload sectors of the industry. We believe that ESsuccessintrucking.com has our company well positioned to meet the needs of all the trucking professionals we currently serve, and we believe it will also help open the doors to future opportunities for our company.”

150 Business Challenge Approaching Program’s Initial Goal

January 18, 2022

When the 150 Business Challenge was first launched in November of 2017, the collaborative program between Expediter Services (ES) and the Women In Trucking Association (WIT) set out to achieve the goal of assisting in the creation of 150 women-owned businesses in transportation. As the program enters its fifth year, the 150 Business Challenge has become a true vehicle of change within the trucking industry, helping in the launch of 132 women-owned businesses.

“Back in the fall of 2017 when we partnered with Expediter Services to launch the 150 Business Challenge, we had high hopes that this program could be a difference maker for creating true ownership opportunities for women in the trucking industry, and the results speak for themselves,” said Ellen Voie, President & CEO of the Women In Trucking Association. “Through this program, ES has helped aspiring women entrepreneurs by removing some of the most trying obstacles when it comes to starting a business in trucking.”

The 150 Business Challenge follows the proven working model that ES utilizes in offering truck ownership opportunities and assisting the program participants in establishing profitable small businesses through a variety of support mechanisms found within the ES Community. Professional drivers interested in the ES truck ownership programs, including the 150 Business Challenge, go through a screening and qualification process that also has an evaluation period.

In addition to looking at work history, it is during the evaluation period program that participants are given the opportunity by ES to demonstrate their attitude, their aptitude and their work ethic. The process that ES utilizes for qualifying truck ownership program participants is unique because it places a greater emphasis on a driver’s work history over a traditional credit score. ES offers qualified participants competitive, market-rate financing for professional drivers seeking to own trucks from the leading equipment brands in the industry.

One of the features of the 150 Business Challenge is the opportunity for program participants to drive as an owner-operator for one of the partner carriers in the ES Community. Members of the 150 Business Challenge are now a part of the fleets at FedEx Custom Critical, Forward Air and Panther Premium Logistics, a service of ArcBest. As part of the additional support that is available, ES also provides program participants access to a complete set of services and discounts through the ES Community that cover the key areas of fuel, maintenance, insurance and back-office support. Other services and discounts are also available through the ES Community.

“Over the years as we have developed our programs, we took note of the hurdles women have faced in trucking from a financial standpoint when looking to start a business, and that was part of our inspiration for launching the 150 Business Challenge,” said ES President and Co-founder Jason Williams. “As business owners ourselves, we understand and appreciate what it takes to push through challenges in order to achieve your goals. We believe in entrepreneurs, and part of our mission at ES is helping people by placing them in the best position to make the most of an opportunity to successfully run their own business.”

Long before the collaboration with WIT on the 150 Business Challenge, ES had established a reputation in the industry for opening doors for women who are seeking to become business owners in trucking. Today, the number of women within the ES Community who are fleet owners, owner-operators or independent contract drivers involved in the programs offered by the company now exceeds 38 percent of the ES fleet.

“Since I first met with the leadership team at ES several years ago, I could see the commitment they have as a company for opening the doors of ownership opportunities in the trucking industry to everyone,” said Ellen. “When we look at the impact that the 150 Business Challenge has made since 2017, this program has become a platform for success because ES offers women more than the opportunity to buy a new truck. This is a truly comprehensive offering that delivers access to the support that business owners need to prosper and grow. ES has done an amazing job with 150 Business Challenge, and we’re looking forward to seeing the next steps for this program.”

ES is excited to announce the company will be presenting the Fall Edition of its IN-SITE 2021 Webinar Series entitled Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks. The live, free event will take place on Tuesday, October 26, at 2:00 p.m. ET. Webinar replays will be available online following the presentation of the live event.

The focus of the IN-SITE 2021 Fall Webinar will be to examine the trends during the first nine months of 2021 within the trucking industry while also looking at what is ahead for the final portion of this year and what’s on the horizon for 2022.

Jason Williams, the President and Co-Founder of ES, and Jeff Tacker, the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Commercial Officer of ES, will be the featured speakers during the webinar “Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks”. In addition to discussing the trends that ES is observing within the trucking industry, the Fall Edition of the IN-SITE 2021 Webinar Series will also provide Jason and Jeff the chance to talk about the truck ownership opportunities and support available through the ES Community.

This edition of the webinar will be moderated by Leah Shaver, the President and CEO of the National Transportation Institute (NTI). Founded in 1995, NTI has earned the reputation as a leader in the trucking industry for tracking company driver and owner-operator compensation history, changes and benchmarks. Leah, who also serves as a host on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146, will be leading the webinar discussion in the style of a fireside chat.

“During our IN-SITE 2021 Series, we have focused all our webinars around one of the strengths of our team at ES, and that is helping aspiring entrepreneurs to realize the dream of starting their own trucking businesses. We have also spent time during the four previous IN-SITE 2021 webinars discussing key issues that are impacting owner-operators, independent contract drivers and fleet owners,” said Jason Williams, President of ES. “As we move toward the final months of this year, we thought it would be valuable to look at the current trends as well as the challenges and opportunities that are on the horizon as we move into 2022.”

“Just as we have done with our past webinars, everyone who joins us will get a chance to learn more about ES and the support our ES Community members receive as they work to build and grow their small businesses,” added Williams. “With this webinar taking place so close to Halloween, we decided to give it the title, Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks. Along with having some fun with the seasonal theme, everyone who joins us for the webinar will be able to see that the programs and opportunities from ES are real. There are no tricks or surprises. We are focused on helping everyone who joins the ES Community to maximize their Success In Trucking.”

ES is proud to have Stoops Freightliner serve as the Title Sponsor for the IN-SITE 2021 Series.
