On September 26th, Expediter Services and the ES Community were featured as part of the Women In Trucking Radio Show, which is broadcast nationally through SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146. ES President Jason Williams and ES Chief Operating Officer Jeff Tacker were the guests during the second hour of this edition of the Women In Trucking (WIT) Radio Show, which highlighted the importance of financial planning and being prepared for the future.
Leah Shaver, the President and CEO of the National Transportation Institute and a member of the WIT Board of Directors, served as the guest host for this edition of the WIT Radio Show. Leah, who is also part of the team of hosts featured on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146, was handling the on-air duties for Ellen Voie, the President and CEO of the Women In Trucking Association.
During their time on the program, Jason and Jeff talked to Leah about the programs and opportunities available for entrepreneurs and small trucking businesses through ES. They discussed the important role that financial planning can play for entrepreneurs who are looking to start or grow businesses within the trucking industry.
One of the programs noted during Leah’s interview with Jeff and Jason was the 150 Business Challenge, the collaborative initiative from ES and WIT that is focused on assisting in the launch and development of 150 women-owned businesses in transportation. Since its inception during fourth quarter of 2017, the 150 Business Challenge has served as the vehicle that has helped to launch nearly 100 new trucking businesses. In addition to discussing the approach that ES takes to financing and the programs available through ES, the interview with Leah provided the opportunity for Jason and Jeff to note the wide spectrum of support that is available through the ES Community.
Following the broadcast, Expediter Services sent a request to SiriusXM and to WIT asking for permission to share Leah’s interview with Jason and Jeff as a special edition of the IN-SITE 2020 Podcast Series.
