MEMPHIS, Tenn. – January 25, 2019 – Expediter Services (ES), a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, is pleased to announce the company will present the Success In Trucking Expo (SITE) this June. The inaugural expo is set for June 7-8 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Complex.
Powered by the company’s proven track record and expertise, ES is committed to making the SITE a valuable and impactful annual event for professional drivers seeking opportunities in truck ownership. In addition, the event will also be focused on helping owner-operators and fleet owners upgrade and/or grow. The program format is being modeled after the successful series of ES events held during the past several years that focused on trucking’s expedited sector. While the SITE will touch on topics key to expediting, the new event from ES promises to take a broader look at the industry, placing a greater concentration on developments in general trucking – recognizing the growth the ES Community has experienced during the past three-plus years in the tractor-related service markets.
Since it entered the expedited market in 2006, ES has utilized a working model that focuses on removing the barriers that hinder professional drivers from becoming truck owners and operating their own small businesses. Through ES, qualified participants in the company’s programs have access to competitive, market-rate financing with a credit-evaluation process that puts an emphasis on attitude, aptitude, work ethic and work history. The ES model has proven to be an effective platform for contract drivers, owner-operators and fleet owners. Today ES is a leading provider of non-asset capacity within the expedited market, and the company’s platform is gaining traction within a general trucking market searching for tractor capacity.
“As ES has grown to gain a presence in general trucking, we began to look at the possibility of expanding the group gatherings we held beyond the expedited sector. As 2019 approached, we felt the timing was right to launch the Success In Trucking Expo,” said Jason Williams, President of ES. “In planning this event, we are being very intentional to give the SITE a feel that is different from the traditional truck shows on the industry calendar. The SITE will be a much more personal, hands-on event that will be focused on connecting with professional contract drivers, owner-operators and fleet owners who are either looking to take the next step in their careers and become truck owners, or they are looking to upgrade or expand their current operations. One of the most important features of the SITE will be the opportunity to meet members of the ES Community, including many of the success stories who have taken the steps to launch small businesses in trucking.”
The program format of the SITE, with its speakers, roundtable discussions and chosen topics, has been designed to share industry knowledge and practical experience to benefit the attendees as they look to build, upgrade and expand their businesses. The motor carriers and vendors participating in the SITE have been hand-picked by ES because of their desire to help the attendees in reaching their goals within the trucking industry.
Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer, a division of Truck Country, will be the title sponsor for the inaugural Success In Trucking Expo. The ES Community motor carriers participating in the SITE are FedEx Custom Critical, Forward Air and Panther Premium Logistics, a Service of ArcBest. These three companies will be the exclusive motor carriers at the SITE. Daimler Truck Financial, Detroit Diesel, Freightliner, Love’s Travel Stops, TA-Petro, Tvc Pro Driver, Inc. and Western Star make up the current list of vendors that will be a part of the SITE. ES company officials note that other ES Community vendors may also be joining this year’s expo.
In addition to being surrounded by the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the kickoff of the SITE will draw additional star power from the sports world with Anthony Muñoz serving as the keynote speaker on the opening night. A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame following his 13-year career with the Cincinnati Bengals, Muñoz is considered to be one of the greatest offensive linemen in the history of the National Football League. A former NFL Man of the Year for his commitment to his community, Muñoz launched the Anthony Muñoz Foundation in 2002. The organization has raised over $10 million in support of children’s programs across Cincinnati and the surrounding region.
“We are quite thrilled and very grateful for the support we have received from the motor carriers and vendors in the ES Community participating in the first edition of the SITE. I know everyone who attends will find value in what our fleets and vendors will be sharing with them,” Williams said. “We are really looking forward to hearing the keynote presentation from Anthony Muñoz. We’re confident that everyone in attendance at the kickoff event for the expo will find the hard work and commitment that Anthony has used in becoming a champion both on and off the football field useful in their own lives. There are a lot of relatable lessons from his life experiences that apply to finding success as a business owner in the trucking industry. We also truly admire Anthony’s continued commitment to uplifting his community. At its core, the SITE is truly a gathering of the ES Community. We believe in supporting each other and uplifting our community members toward success.”
One of the unique features about the SITE is that ES is offering free hotel accommodations and free meals for pre-qualified expo registrants. A limited number of those slots are available for the event, and attendees receiving them will be chosen from the registration submissions ES receives. The registration form and complete information on the event are available at SuccessInTruckingExpo.com.
“We sincerely value the time and effort it takes for people who are involved in the trucking industry to come off the road,” Williams said. “We are looking forward to working with everyone who is interested in attending and going through the registration and pre-qualification process with them. We’re counting the days until June 7th. Our entire team at ES is committed to building the SITE into the place to be this June.” Watch our video to learn more.
