MEMPHIS, Tenn. – May 16, 2019 – ES, a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, is pleased to announce the programming details for the company’s inaugural Success In Trucking Expo (SITE), which will take place June 7-8 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway complex. The two-day agenda for the SITE has been designed specifically for professional drivers, owner-operators and fleet owners who have a desire to explore ownership opportunities or grow current operations.
Ellen Voie, the President & CEO of the Women In Trucking Association, is among an impressive list of industry experts who have committed to participate in the SITE for 2019. Voie will be a part of an industry panel discussion that will bring together trucking experts, contract professional drivers, truck owners and fleet owners who are part of the ES Community. Among those joining Voie on the panel will be Brian McCoy, the President of Stoops Freightliner, and Leah Shaver, the Chief Operating Officer of the National Transportation Institute. The panel also will feature Chris Moran, Freightliner District Sales Manager, from Daimler Trucks of North America and Colton Lawrence, CEO of EQUINOX Owner Operator Solutions.
Anthony Muñoz, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and an entrepreneur with a long record of success for making a positive impact within Cincinnati and the surrounding communities, will highlight the opening session for the SITE, serving as the keynote speaker on the evening of June 7th. The panel discussions and the presentations by the carriers participating in the SITE will take place the following day.
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, and each company will have a representative who will be making a presentation during the expo. Mike Abood, FedEx Custom Critical’s Managing Director of Fleet Operations, Nick Burch, Panther’s Director of Owner-Operator Recruiting, and Ryan Gilliam, Forward Air’s Vice President of Recruiting, have been chosen by their respective carriers as speakers for the 2019 SITE.
The attendees also will hear a presentation from ES CEO Paul Williams and ES President Jason Williams. The ES presentation will take place prior to the event’s final ride-and-drive session, which will be hosted by 2019 SITE Title Sponsor Stoops Freightliner.
“Over the past several months, we have been working very diligently to develop an event and programming for the Success In Trucking Expo that will be meaningful and have a positive impact for professional drivers interested in ownership as well as current owner-operators and fleet owners who are looking to grow their businesses,” said Jason Williams. “With the group of experts who will be coming to our SITE stage at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway complex, we are confident that everyone joining us for the inaugural edition of the SITE will take away the kind of knowledge and perspective that they will find helpful as they move forward in their trucking careers.”
In addition to participating in the industry panel discussion, Voie will be hosting the June 8th edition of her Women In Trucking Radio Show live and on location from the SITE. The WIT Radio Show is broadcast live every Saturday on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio channel from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern time.
