We’ll get a look at what’s happening in the equipment market and we’ll go inside how ES Truck Sales works with trucking professionals who are in the market to buy late-model, pre-owned trucks from ES.

This week, Spotlight News will be placing our focus on ES Truck Sales. We spent some time recently talking with Danny Vernon, Director of Truck Sales and Finance for ES, and Tom Parker, Danny’s first lieutenant on the Sales Team, to get an update on the latest happenings with truck sales and equipment financing as part of the comprehensive set of offerings that ES has made available for trucking professionals to access.

In this episode of the Success In Trucking Podcast Series, we focused on what’s happening in the overall truck market, how ES Truck Sales works with pre-owned equipment and how potential buyers can utilize the financing options available from ES.

In addition to Danny’s observations about the truck market and the activity the company has seen in the area of pre-owned equipment within the expedited sector of trucking, we spent some time talking to Tom about his first year at ES and what he has learned.

As you will hear during the podcast, we also took the opportunity to have Tom walk us through what happens when he gets a call from someone who is interested in buying a truck – including the care that ES takes to provide information about the truck to the potential buyer.

On the topic of financing and the comprehensive support that is available from ES, Danny talked to us about the Path To Ownership program from ES as well as the advantages of becoming part of the ES Community.

Exploring Straight Truck Opportunities & Getting Started Inside The ES Community

August 16, 2022

How many of you have considered exploring taking your trucking career in the direction of expediting and driving a straight truck? Perhaps you are looking into opportunities that offer an easier entry into the trucking industry with the ability for great earning potential or you’ve been in the industry a few years with a class A and are looking for something different. If so, have you looked into straight trucks and the expedited sector?

Spotlight News recently put these questions in front of David Withers, the Senior Director of Operations and Recruiting for ES. David joined us for our latest edition of the Success In Trucking Podcast Powered By ES. David and his teams in both Operations and Recruiting at ES are continually keeping their fingers on the pulse of what’s happening and trending with professional drivers.

Getting behind the wheel of a straight truck, and driving within the expedited sector of the trucking industry can sometimes be overlooked by new entrants considering opportunities in trucking or veteran drivers looking for a change in their careers. For new entrants into the industry, driving a straight truck can be a great way to get introduced to the industry. One advantage with straight truck opportunities is that you don’t have to secure a Class A license to drive a straight truck.

During our Success In Trucking Podcast interview with David, we discuss the straight truck opportunities that are currently available in the ES Community, and David provides an introduction to the programs and services that are available when you become part of the ES Community. We also discuss how ES works to match up professional drivers with the expedited carriers that are a part of the ES Community.

One of the points that is highlighted during the podcast is the level of support that ES Community members receive from the team at ES from the moment that first phone call is made or first email is sent to the Recruiting Team at ES. In addition, David discusses the support that ES Community members will be receiving from the Service Coordinators in Operations.

If you are new to the industry or if you are a trucking veteran seeking a better path, the conversation with David during this edition of the Success In Trucking Podcast should prove to be quite helpful in your search for an opportunity that has the ability to deliver a better quality of life for you and your family.

If you are inspired by David’s podcast and want to grow your business give us a call at 877-349-9303 or click here to contact us.
