150 Business Challenge Update: Women-Owned Business Program From ES & WIT Surpasses Major Milestone

Expediter Services, a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, is pleased to announce that the company’s collaborative program with the Women In Trucking Association to create 150 women-owned businesses in transportation recently reached a major milestone. The 150 Business Challenge, which was launched in November of 2017, marked its third anniversary by having helped more than 100 new women-owned business get their respective starts within the trucking industry. Today, the total number of businesses launched through the 150 Business Challenge now stands at 105.

“When we partnered with Expediter Services (ES) three years ago to launch the 150 Business Challenge, we were so excited and that enthusiasm continues to this day. 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,” said Ellen Voie, President & CEO of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT).

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, like the 150 Business Challenge, go through a screening and qualification process, including 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 company’s process 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.

“We know what it means to push through a hard time in order to get ahead,” said ES President Jason Williams. “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 as we started the 150 Business Challenge three years ago. We believe in helping people and allowing them to make the most of an opportunity.”

“The 150 Business Challenge has become a platform for success because ES offers women more than the opportunity to buy a new truck. This is a truly comprehensive program that delivers access to the support that business owners need to prosper and grow”
~ Ellen Voie

The Business 150 Challenge provides participants the opportunity 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.

“The 150 Business Challenge has become a platform for success because ES offers women more than the opportunity to buy a new truck. This is a truly comprehensive program that delivers access to the support that business owners need to prosper and grow,” said Ellen. “ES has done an amazing job with 150 Business Challenge, and we’re looking forward to seeing the next steps this program will take in 2021.”

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.

Looking specifically at results from the 150 Business Challenge, the small businesses that have been established through this program have developed a solid track record of success and growth. According to officials at ES, this group of small businesses started through the 150 Business Challenge are generating a combined revenue total well in excess of $2 million per month.

“One of the most rewarding parts of the 150 Business Challenge for our team at ES has been the opportunity to work with the great people we get to welcome into the program. We have really enjoyed working with new entrepreneurs and watching these small businesses get started, achieve success and grow,” said Jason. “Obviously, everyone in business has faced some unique headwinds in 2020. We are grateful to be able to serve as a resource for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to find their success in trucking. We are looking forward to welcoming the 150th business started through the 150 Business Challenge during 2021.”

After three years of operation, the program has now assisted in the creation of more than 100 new women-owned trucking businesses.

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.

Following the blueprint that helped provide ES with a successful debut of the IN-SITE 2020 Series in July, ES has once again assembled an expert panel that will be participating in our August edition of the webinar. For the upcoming live event, ES will be taking a slightly different approach than the company utilized in the debut of the IN-SITE 2020 series.

In addition to the webinar series, IN-SITE 2020 has also launched a podcast series featuring the panelists and other experts providing in-depth discussions on the key issues of the day facing owner-operators, fleet owners and independent professional drivers considering truck ownership opportunities. To access the catalog of podcasts from the IN-SITE 2020 Online Series and to learn about other aspects of the overall program, click on the following link: https://essuccessintrucking.com/insite2020/.

ES has planned IN-SITE 2020 webinars for August and September as part of the overall program. The upcoming live webinar events in the series will also have topics of interest for owner-operators, fleet owners and any aspiring entrepreneurs within trucking. The topics and panelists will be announced in the near future. The IN-SITE 2020 podcast series will continue to offer new episodes with in-depth conversations on key topics and issues.

“We are looking forward to reaching out to individuals in trucking and to people who are interested in the industry to share information and to begin a conversation,” said Mr. Williams. “IN-SITE 2020 is not about selling a truck or a program. IN-SITE 2020 will be focused on what’s happening in our industry and what can be possible. When you think about it, the vast majority of the trucking industry is made up of companies with one to three trucks. In other words, trucking is made up of entrepreneurs. At ES, we believe that entrepreneurs will continue to play a significant role within the changes and the growth of the industry in the future. We hope that all those professional drivers, owner-operators, independent contractors and fleet owners interested in the business of trucking will connect with us through IN-SITE 2020.”

About ES: A full-service, one-stop support company with expertise in financial services, relationship lending and general business support, ES has developed highly effective programs focused on creating opportunities for independent contract drivers and owner-operators in the trucking industry. ES features support in the areas of contract driver services, equipment finance, truck sales, management services and insurance services.

The Success In Trucking Expo Returns to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in June for SITE 2020

Hosted by Expediter Services (ES), the program format of the SITE, with its speakers, roundtable discussions and chosen topics, is being structured to share industry knowledge and practical experience to benefit the attendees as they look to build, upgrade and expand their businesses. One of the most unique features about the SITE is that ES is offering free hotel accommodations and free meals for prequalified 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.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – January 29, 2020 – Expediter Services (ES), a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, is pleased to announce that the company will once again host the Success In Trucking Expo (SITE). For the second consecutive year, ES has chosen the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Complex as the location for the SITE, which will take place June 5-6.

Through the structure and atmosphere that the event established during its inaugural run in 2019, the SITE stands out when compared to the traditional truck shows currently on the calendar in the overall experience it delivers for those in attendance. Led by the efforts of ES, the participating carriers, sponsors and vendors, the SITE offers a much more personal and hands-on event, providing expert perspective on the state of the industry while offering opportunities to become an entrepreneur and grow a business within trucking. The focus of the SITE 2020 will once again be placed on connecting with professional drivers who are looking to take the next step in their careers and become truck owners. The SITE also offers a platform to help address the needs of contract drivers, owner-operators and fleet owners.

ES has established a dedicated website that covers all aspects of the SITE 2020, including registration for the event. The website can be accessed through this link.

“The Success In Trucking Expo is designed to offer solutions to some of the leading challenges in the trucking market today. Whether it’s access to reliable capacity or connecting people with attainable opportunities for truck ownership and steady business growth for entrepreneurs, the 2020 edition of the SITE will be dedicated to providing helpful insights and innovative answers for people looking to achieve greater levels of success in trucking,” said Paul Williams, the Chief Executive Officer of ES. “We are thrilled to bring the SITE back to the home of the Indy 500, and our ES team is focused on creating a meaningful experience for everyone who joins us. We will have a fast-paced and interesting program at the SITE, which provides opportunities for everyone to learn about our ES Community of support. Everyone who joins us at the SITE 2020 will be able to see how ES stands with the participants in our program and offers support in both the best of times and the most challenging times for this industry.”

One of the most unique features about the SITE is that ES is offering free hotel accommodations and free meals for prequalified 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 for the event can be accessed through this link. 

Legendary football coach Bobby Bowden will serve as the keynote speaker on the first day of the SITE 2020. With 377 victories in his career, Bowden is one of the winningest coaches in college football history. From 1976-2009, Bowden led Florida State University, and he built the football program into a perennial powerhouse, winning two national championships and earning 22 postseason bowl victories at the helm of FSU. In his 44 seasons overall as a head football coach, Bowden compiled 40 winning seasons, including 33 straight at FSU.

Off the field, Bowden is the author and co-author of several books, and he has served as a leading voice for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. In fact, the FCA has named an annual award in honor of Bowden. The Bobby Bowden Student-Athlete of the Year Award recognizes one college football player for achievements on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

“We are very proud to welcome Coach Bowden as our keynote speaker for this year’s SITE. His record for achieving success on and off the field as well as his dedication to be of service to others during his lifetime are truly inspirational,” said Jason Williams, President of ES. “We are looking forward to hearing what Coach Bowden will be sharing with us at the SITE. We know his message will hit home with everyone in attendance.”

ES is building a comprehensive program for the SITE 2020. 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 serve as the title sponsor of the SITE for the second straight year. 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, all of which were part of the SITE 2019, will once again be the exclusive motor carriers at the SITE. 

Daimler Truck Financial, Detroit Diesel, Equinox Owner-Operator Solutions, Freightliner, Love’s Travel Stops, Paccar Financial, Peterbilt Truck Centers, TA-Petro, TVC Pro Driver, Inc., Vanguard Truck Centers, Volvo Financial Services, Western Star, Crosspoint Power and Refrigeration and the Women In Trucking Association served as vendors at the 2019 SITE. ES officials are expecting the return of last year’s vendors as well as other additions for the SITE 2020.

In addition to the keynote speech by Coach Bowden, the SITE 2020 will feature industry leaders and subject-matter experts sharing their insights through both presentations and discussions. Women In Trucking Association President and CEO Ellen Voie is a part of the speakers list for the SITE 2020 program currently in development by ES.

In November of 2017, ES partnered with the Women In Trucking Association to launch the 150 Business Challenge, a collaborative initiative between the two organizations to create 150 women-owned businesses in transportation. Over the past two-plus years, the 150 Business Challenge is fast approaching 100 new trucking start-ups as a result of participation in the program, which offers an attainable path to financing as well as operational and business support for women who have an interest in a career path within the trucking industry.

Leah Shaver, the Chief Operating Officer of the National Transportation Institute, is one of the industry experts who will be a part of the SITE 2020. Shaver also serves as a host on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel, and she is a member of the Women In Trucking Association’s Board of Directors. She recently participated in the ES Success In Trucking Podcast, discussing changes in the market since the record year of 2018 along with the realities owner-operators often face when launching or attempting to grow a trucking business. During the podcast, Shaver, who serves as a consultant for ES, noted the comprehensive structure of the ES program and the support systems the company has put into place to promote success.

“Truck drivers like freedom and flexibility and that’s why they choose this career. ES is working to help create small businesses with a program that allows the participants to choose the opportunity that is the best fit from a group of partner carriers,” said Shaver. “ES doesn’t stop at financing the truck. The ES Community provides support and leverage. They provide carrier advocacy, allowing a business owner the ability to focus on generating revenue and not on day-to-day issues.

“ES leverages their experience and contacts within the industry to negotiate and make available a variety of other resources and services to their business community,” she added. “The motto at ES is that you never stand alone, and, when you see how ES works with the participants in their programs, it’s clear they live up to that motto every day.”

Since it entered the trucking industry 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 continues to gain traction within a general trucking market searching for safe, stable, and scalable tractor capacity solutions.

“We are working very hard to do everything that we can to make the SITE 2020 the kind of event that will have a positive impact for everyone who makes the trip to Indianapolis. We are looking forward to working with anyone who is interested in attending. Our goal with the SITE 2020 is to make it a fun, meaningful and memorable experience for everyone involved. Just as we did last year, ES will be providing free hotel accommodations and free meals to prequalified SITE registrants. Don’t wait, there are a limited number of these spots available. Please go to our website, register and start the pre-qualification process. June 5th will be here before you know it,” said Jeff Tacker, the Chief Operating Officer at ES. “If you are interested in true truck ownership with the full support of the ES Community, I would encourage you to visit SuccessInTruckingExpo.com to learn more and to register.”
