MEMPHIS, Tenn. – September 22, 2020 – Expediter Services (ES), a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, is pleased to announce the company will be presenting the third edition in the IN-SITE 2020 Webinar Series. The webinar, entitled Trucking in the COVID-19 Era: Insights From Real Truck Owners, will focus on how fleet owners and owner-operators in the ES Community have adjusted to the challenges and leveraged the opportunities that they have encountered so far in the COVID-19 era.
The one-hour, live broadcast of the webinar will take place on Tuesday, September 29th at 2:00 p.m. EDT. The online replay for the third webinar in the IN-SITE 2020 Webinar Series will be available approximately two hours following the conclusion of the live event. Both the live event and replay are free to all registrants.
The format for the September 29th event will be similar to the approach ES utilized in August during the second webinar in the IN-SITE 2020 Series. For the August webinar, which highlighted the topic of partnering with the right motor carrier, the points of interest were covered through a focused discussion as well as brief question-and-answer sessions with the panelists.
Leah Shaver, the President and CEO of the National Transportation Institute, will serve as the moderator for the discussion with the panelists. Leah, who also serves as a host on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146, will be leading the discussion in the style of a fireside chat, sharing the stories of the business owners on the panel and detailing how they have utilized the resources of the ES Community in working to overcome the obstacles they have encountered in running their businesses.
“Every day at ES, we are working with our team and our ES Community members to address what it takes to make a small business successful in the trucking industry. During the presentation of our webinar series, we’ve also placed a significant focus on the challenges and the opportunities that owner-operators, fleet owners and professional drivers who are aspiring to become business owners are encountering during this historic year of 2020,” said ES President Jason Williams. “For the third webinar in our IN-SITE 2020 Series, we thought it would be valuable to share the perspectives from some of the business owners in the ES Community. We believe the attendees who join us for this webinar are going to truly benefit from what this group of successful business owners will be bringing to the table for our discussion.”
The ES Community members who will be a part of the upcoming webinar are fleet owners Joe and Carol Shelton, business owner Amy Williams and owner-operator Jacobus Nel. Jeff Tacker, the Chief Operating Officer of ES, will also be joining Jason Williams and Ms. Shaver as part of the expert panel on September 29th.
The Sheltons entered the trucking industry in 2010 and began working with ES as part of the couple’s effort to build a trucking business. In 2011, the Sheltons became fleet owners at FedEx Custom Critical, operating their own LLC while utilizing the programs and services ES offers to small business owners in trucking. Amy Williams began building her small business at Panther Premium Logisitcs, a service of ArcBest, through the 150 Business Challenge, the collaboration between ES and the Women In Trucking Association to establish 150 women-owned businesses in transportation. Jacobus Nel became an owner-operator earlier this year, starting his trucking business at Forward Air through the ES Path To Ownership program.
