150 Business Challenge Approaching Program’s Initial Goal

When the 150 Business Challenge was first launched in November of 2017, the collaborative program between Expediter Services (ES) and the Women In Trucking Association (WIT) set out to achieve the goal of assisting in the creation of 150 women-owned businesses in transportation. As the program enters its fifth year, the 150 Business Challenge has become a true vehicle of change within the trucking industry, helping in the launch of 132 women-owned businesses.

“Back in the fall of 2017 when we partnered with Expediter Services to launch the 150 Business Challenge, we had high hopes that this program could be a difference maker for creating true ownership opportunities for women in the trucking industry, and the results speak for themselves,” said Ellen Voie, President & CEO of the Women In Trucking Association. “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.”

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, including the 150 Business Challenge, go through a screening and qualification process that also has 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 process that ES utilizes 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.

One of the features of the 150 Business Challenge is the opportunity for program participants 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.

“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 for launching the 150 Business Challenge,” said ES President and Co-founder Jason Williams. “As business owners ourselves, we understand and appreciate what it takes to push through challenges in order to achieve your goals. We believe in entrepreneurs, and part of our mission at ES is helping people by placing them in the best position to make the most of an opportunity to successfully run their own business.”

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.

“Since I first met with the leadership team at ES several years ago, I could see the commitment they have as a company for opening the doors of ownership opportunities in the trucking industry to everyone,” said Ellen. “When we look at the impact that the 150 Business Challenge has made since 2017, this program has become a platform for success because ES offers women more than the opportunity to buy a new truck. This is a truly comprehensive offering that delivers access to the support that business owners need to prosper and grow. ES has done an amazing job with 150 Business Challenge, and we’re looking forward to seeing the next steps for this program.”

2022 It’s All About You Campaign Highlighted On SiriusXM & Radio Nemo

Just as the calendar was getting ready to turn to the New Year, Jeff Tacker from the ES Senior Leadership Team had the opportunity to share some thoughts on national radio about the 2022 It’s All About You Campaign from ES. Jeff, who serves as the Chief Operating Officer and the Chief Commercial Officer for Expediter Services, was a guest during December’s final days on the Dave Nemo Show, which is broadcast on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146.

Jeff was one of the day’s main guests featured on the day he appeared. He was on the air for two segments on Radio Nemo, covering a 30-minute block of the four-hour daily program. Jeff was interviewed on this edition of the Dave Nemo Show by Jimmy Mac, who serves as the program’s lead guest host.

The two segments featured on this edition of the program provided Jimmy and Jeff a chance to reconnect after they had spent some time together at the Women In Trucking Association’s Accelerate Conference, which had taken place in Dallas in November.

In addition to looking at the year ahead, Jeff’s conversation with Jimmy offered him the opportunity to talk about what’s happening at ES as well as how the company works to create opportunities within the industry. It was during the second segment following a commercial break in the show when Jimmy asked Jeff about the 2022, It’s All About You campaign that ES is launching in the new year.

If you would like to listen to Jeff’s appearance on SiriusXM and the Dave Nemo Radio Show, Spotlight News has included a replay of the interview within this story. ES would like to thank Radio Nemo, SiriusXM and the Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel for allowing Spotlight News to share the replay of Jeff’s interview on the Dave Nemo Show as a special edition of the Success In Trucking Podcast. For anyone who has a subscription to SiriusXM Radio or the SiriusXM app, the Dave Nemo Show can be heard each morning from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Eastern time on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146.

 

Success In Trucking Podcast: Radio Nemo Interview with Jeff Tacker

Guest host Jimmy Mac welcomed Jeff Tacker to the Dave Nemo Show in late December. Jeff, who is the Chief Operating Officer and the Chief Commercial Officer for Expediter Services, highlighted what is happening at ES and shared perspective on the 2022, It’s All About You campaign from ES.

ES Launches New Campaign: In 2022, It’s All About You!

Looking back on what is now more than 15 years of history since the founding of Expediter Services, the company has always placed its focus on how the programs and services from ES can best support owner-operators, independent contract drivers and entrepreneurs within the trucking industry in their efforts to be successful. The ES Company Motto of Never Stand Alone speaks to the commitment that the entire ES Team makes every day to concentrate on meeting the needs of trucking business owners and most notably the people in the driver’s seat. ES is always looking at the industry outward from the truck level.

As the calendar now turns to a New Year, ES is launching a new campaign that speaks to the company’s deep roots and dedication to trucking professionals who are seeking to build and grow their businesses within a dynamic and changing industry. The “2022 It’s All About You” campaign from ES will serve as a platform for amplifying the company’s outreach to aspiring trucking entrepreneurs and current trucking business owners. At the heart of 2022 It’s All About You, trucking professionals will find that ES will be inviting them to not stand alone and to utilize the programs and services available from the company to assist them with maximizing their success in trucking.

Throughout 2022, Spotlight News will be featuring a series of articles that will be sharing helpful information and valuable perspectives from the company as part of the 2022 It’s All About You campaign. At the launch of this initiative, we spent some time with Jeff Tacker, who is part of the Senior Leadership Team at ES. Jeff serves as the Chief Operating Officer and the Chief Commercial Officer for ES. We will be hearing from Jeff and other members of the ES Team throughout the year as part of the 2022 It’s All About You Campaign.

Here is one of the questions we asked Jeff at the beginning of the campaign…

What inspired the 2022 It’s All About You Campaign?

Jeff: Over the past couple of years, the entire world has faced a lot of challenges and the trucking industry, as the center of the supply chain, has risen to the occasion – whether that’s making adjustments within the COVID pandemic or dealing with equipment shortages and the availability of new trucks. With everything that has happened, it would be easy to look at the obstacles, but that won’t help you move forward. So, part of what we would like to do with our 2022 campaign is to help the people we serve and those who would like to join our ES Community to keep things in perspective and to focus on the positives, especially the opportunities that are present in today’s trucking industry.

At ES, the focus of our programs and our support services has always been placed first and foremost on trucking professionals – the owner-operators, independent contract drivers, fleet owners and small business owners in this industry.

The 2022 It’s All About You Campaign is a two-way call to action. First of all, it’s a reminder to all of us at ES to continue to be responsive and find ways that we can stand with the members of the ES Community while also expanding our community as we work to help the trucking industry move forward. We believe our 2022 It’s All About You campaign will be especially valuable for those trucking professionals who are working to address the current challenges of the day while making the most of the opportunities on the horizon.

Our 2022 It’s All About You Campaign is also a call to action for trucking business owners to take the time to look into the mirror and do a thorough evaluation of your business. How can you make your business better and stronger during these times? Where do you need help? Who is willing to walk with you and provide the type of support and deliver the kinds of advantages that can increase your success in trucking? We see 2022 as a time to look both inward and outward. As always, ES is here to make sure that you never stand alone. That’s why, in 2022, it’s all about you!

Looking Back At 2021: An Eventful Year That Moved Quickly

It’s hard to believe this year’s road trip across the calendar has driven us to the point where the mile markers for 2022 can almost be seen through the windshield. Before we reach the end of 2021, a year that has seemed to roll as quickly as a trip down the open highway, Spotlight News would like to dedicate some time to looking in the mirror at what was a memorable year for the ES Community and the trucking industry.

So, as we approach the holidays as well as the season when some trucking professionals need to pack snow caps with their equipment, Spotlight News would like to offer you our recap summary of highlights and events that took place within the ES Community during 2021.

Looking back at 2021, it was a year where the trucking industry and the world began to take the first significant steps toward in-person events and a new normal in the wake of a global pandemic. ES served as the presenting sponsor for the return of the Expedite Expo, which celebrated the event’s 20th anniversary with a strong turnout making the trip to Fort Wayne, Ind. in mid-July. The IN-SITE Dinner at the Expo, which was hosted by ES, drew a record crowd during the first day of the 2021 Expedite Expo.

ES was also front and center during the in-person event return of the Women In Trucking Association’s Accelerate Conference, which was held in Dallas during November. This year’s edition of Accelerate marked the fourth anniversary since the launch of the 150 Business Challenge, a collaboration between ES and the Women In Trucking Association (WIT) to assist in the creation of 150 women-owned businesses within the transportation industry. As the 150 Business Challenge prepares to enter its fifth year, the overall total of the new businesses created through this glass-ceiling-shattering program has now reached 130.

Some of the outreach efforts that ES launched in 2020, with the pandemic creating the need to pivot, continued forward in 2021. During the past year, ES hosted five editions of the IN-SITE Webinar Series. While the IN-SITE webinars covered a variety of timely topics and shared valuable perspectives, the primary focus was placed on what current and aspiring entrepreneurs need to consider when starting or growing a trucking business.

The Success In Trucking Podcast Series was also a part of the outreach efforts by ES during 2021. In addition to bringing listeners updates and perspectives from members of the ES Team, the Success In Trucking podcast offered the opportunity to hear from members of the ES Community who have utilized the programs and support available from ES to start and grow their own trucking businesses. The Success In Trucking Podcast also featured some special editions with replays of radio appearances by members of the ES Team. In 2021, ES was asked to participate in featured interviews on the Dave Nemo Show, which is broadcast on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146. The replays, which were provided courtesy of Radio Nemo and Road Dog Trucking Radio, provided an opportunity for people who missed the live broadcast or who may not have a SiriusXM subscription the opportunity to hear interviews with members of the ES Team.

As you can see from what Spotlight News has collected for our readers here, 2021 has been a busy and fast-paced year within the ES Community. If you missed any of the highlights from 2021, we wanted to give you the opportunity to take a last look back before the year came to a close. We have organized our collection of highlights into groups and you can use the topic header listed below this story to take you to a specific set of highlights.

 

IN-SITE Dinner at The Expo

Featured Speakers: Jason Williams and Jeff Tacker

As part of our coverage from the 2021 Expedite Expo, ES recorded the presentation program that was made at the IN-SITE Dinner at the Expedite Expo. This event, which took place on Day 1 of the Expo, brought together a crowd of more than 180 audience members who heard the latest insights on the trucking industry as well as details on the services, programs and opportunities that are available for professional drivers through ES. ES Chief Operating Officer Jeff Tacker and ES President Jason Williams were the featured speakers during the IN-SITE Dinner Program.

Expedite Expo Conversation With Jason Williams

Shortly after the conclusion of the 2021 Expedite Expo, we talked with Jason Williams, the President & Co-Founder of ES. We asked Jason to share some of his observations from this edition of the Expedite Expo, which was the first in-person trade show event in the trucking industry since the global pandemic.

Expedite Expo Conversation With Women In Trucking Association Founder Ellen Voie

With the Expedite Expo celebrating its 20th anniversary and the return of the event this year, ES spent some time with Women In Trucking Association President & CEO Ellen Voie, who has been attending the Expedite Expo since its inception. We talked with Ellen about the return of the Expo, the 150 Business Challenge program developed by ES and WIT as well as many other trucking industry topics of interest.

Expedite Expo Conversation With OnTime Media President Monte Stetler

As part of the effort by ES to capture what took place at the 2021 edition of the Expedite Expo, we talked with OnTime Media President Monte Stetler. OnTime Media launched the Expedite Expo and has hosted the event for 20 years. In addition to marking a milestone anniversary, this year’s Expedite Expo became the first major in-person trucking event since the global pandemic. Monte took some time as the Expedite Expo was wrapping up to discuss his company’s decision to move forward and host the Expo and the support he received from ES as the title sponsor.

Introduction of New Program

Details on New Lease to Own Program from ES and Panther Premium Logistics

ES and Panther Premium Logistics, a Service of ArcBest, have developed a revolutionary lease-to-own truck program that provides professional drivers with the opportunity to achieve true truck ownership with access to competitive market-rate financing and the full support of two of the most respected organizations in the trucking industry. Frank Tufano, the Director of Owner-Operator Recruiting for Panther, talked with us at the Expedite Expo about the relationship he has built with the team at ES and he also offered an overview of the new program.

In mid-November, ES President and Co-Founder Jason Williams made his second appearance of 2021 as a guest on the Dave Nemo Show, which is the morning drive program featured on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146. Just a few days ahead of the segment on the nationwide radio broadcast, Jason and Dave had both attended the Women In Trucking Association’s annual Accelerate Conference in Dallas, and their time at Accelerate created a point of reference that made the segment very conversational.

Dave, who has more than 50 years of experience hosting radio shows that speak to America’s professional drivers, focused his time with Jason in three areas of interest. Dave began the interview by asking Jason to look back at 2021 and share his observations on what the ES Team and ES Community has experienced to this point in 2021.

In reflecting on this year in trucking, Jason was able to speak to the strength of the ES Community as well as the spirit of support and can-do attitude that remains strong among ES Community members as the trucking industry and the world continues to navigate the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The second part of the conversation highlighted the relationship that ES has built with the Women In Trucking Association (WIT) over the years. Dave provided Jason with the opportunity to discuss how ES and WIT have worked together in collaboration to develop the 150 Business Challenge – the program the two organizations established in 2017 to assist in the launch of 150 women-owned businesses. Jason was able to share with Dave that the total number of new businesses created through this ground-breaking program has reached 130.

The final portion of Jason’s November interview on the Dave Nemo Radio Show focused on the vendor network and the comprehensive range of services that are available through the ES Community. The interview gave Jason the chance to talk about how the ES Community is continuing to grow and expand as part of the commitment by ES to make sure that trucking professionals Never Stand Alone.

We are Thankful for YOU!

During this season of Thanksgiving, ES would like to give thanks to YOU, the independent contractors, owner-operators, fleet owners, motor carriers and vendors, who are the backbone of everything we do as a community. You are the reason ES continues to invest in support services, programs and technologies in order serve you better by providing opportunities to help you grow your business.

We have much to be thankful for in 2021, and we’re looking forward to 2022, where it’s all about YOU!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

“The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added… No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People,  I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.”President Abraham Lincoln: Proclamation of Thanksgiving

The Road Ahead for the New Truck Market & Growth of Small Trucking Businesses Among Topics During Latest ES IN-SITE 2021 Webinar Replay

Were you able to connect with ES through Zoom on October 26th for the Fall Edition of IN-SITE 2021 Webinar Series? ES hosted an informative discussion that covered a range of timely topics during Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks.

If you missed the live event or if you would like to watch it again, ES has now made the video replay of the webinar available through the ES Success In Trucking YouTube Channel.

This edition of the IN-SITE 2021 series was the fifth webinar that ES has hosted this year. As ES has done with the previous four webinars, the Fall Edition of the series was anchored around the theme of Starting Your Own Trucking Business.

Jason Williams, the President and Co-Founder of ES, and Jeff Tacker, the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Commercial Officer of ES, served as the panelists for the webinar. Jason and Jeff were joined on the webinar by Leah Shaver, the President and CEO of the National Transportation Institute, who served as the moderator. Leah, who is a host on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146, was on camera from her NTI studio, while Jason and Jeff joined the webinar on camera from the headquarters of ES.

The approach the group took with the webinar was to make it a conversation that would allow them to examine the trends that have taken place within the trucking industry so far during 2021. The group focused specifically on issues impacting aspiring trucking entrepreneurs and current small trucking business owners. As viewers of the replay will see, this edition of the webinar covers a number of top topics that are a part of today’s trucking landscape, including what’s happening in the new truck market, access to financing and freight trends in the coming year.

The Fall Edition of the IN-SITE 2021 Webinar Series also provided Jason and Jeff the chance to talk about the truck ownership opportunities and support available through the ES Community. As you can see through the webinar replay, Jason and Jeff, in responding to the questions and points that Leah raised, were able to compare and contrast the challenges new owner-operators who obtain their own authority can face versus new business owners who are members of the ES Community.

The webinar discussion offered an opportunity for Jason and Jeff to detail how the comprehensive set of programs and service offerings available through the ES Community work to position owner-operators, independent contract drivers and fleet owners for success in today’s trucking industry.

ES would like to invite you to watch the video replay of our IN-SITE 2021 Fall Webinar, Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks.

ES Welcomes Tom Parker to Our Truck Sales Team That is Ready for Continued Growth in 2022

ES recently welcomed Tom Parker as the newest member of the ES Truck Sales Team. The addition of Tom to the team led by ES Director of Truck Sales & Finance Danny Vernon is part of the company’s ongoing work to be responsive to the members of the ES Community and to everyone interested in the offerings from ES. As part of his new role, Tom will be a resource for the aspiring entrepreneurs considering the programs from ES as the road to starting their own trucking businesses. Tom will also be working with owners who are looking to grow their existing trucking businesses.

In this edition of Spotlight News, we are sharing the latest edition of the Success In Trucking Podcast featuring an interview with both Tom and Danny. Through this episode of the podcast, listeners will have an opportunity to hear from Tom as he shares a little bit on his background and his initial impressions following his introduction to becoming part of the overall team at ES.

As you’ll hear during the interview, Tom, in addition to beginning his responsibilities as part of the sales team, is also working to learn all aspects of the ES operation by spending time in the various departments of the company.

Free Webinar:
Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks
Tuesday, October 26, at 2:00 p.m. ET.

ES is excited to announce the company will be presenting the Fall Edition of its IN-SITE 2021 Webinar Series entitled Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks. The live, free event will take place on Tuesday, October 26, at 2:00 p.m. ET. Webinar replays will be available online following the presentation of the live event.

The focus of the IN-SITE 2021 Fall Webinar will be to examine the trends during the first nine months of 2021 within the trucking industry while also looking at what is ahead for the final portion of this year and what’s on the horizon for 2022.

Jason Williams, the President and Co-Founder of ES, and Jeff Tacker, the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Commercial Officer of ES, will be the featured speakers during the webinar “Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks”. In addition to discussing the trends that ES is observing within the trucking industry, the Fall Edition of the IN-SITE 2021 Webinar Series will also provide Jason and Jeff the chance to talk about the truck ownership opportunities and support available through the ES Community.

This edition of the webinar will be moderated by Leah Shaver, the President and CEO of the National Transportation Institute (NTI). Founded in 1995, NTI has earned the reputation as a leader in the trucking industry for tracking company driver and owner-operator compensation history, changes and benchmarks. Leah, who also serves as a host on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146, will be leading the webinar discussion in the style of a fireside chat.

“During our IN-SITE 2021 Series, we have focused all our webinars around one of the strengths of our team at ES, and that is helping aspiring entrepreneurs to realize the dream of starting their own trucking businesses. We have also spent time during the four previous IN-SITE 2021 webinars discussing key issues that are impacting owner-operators, independent contract drivers and fleet owners,” said Jason Williams, President of ES. “As we move toward the final months of this year, we thought it would be valuable to look at the current trends as well as the challenges and opportunities that are on the horizon as we move into 2022.”

“Just as we have done with our past webinars, everyone who joins us will get a chance to learn more about ES and the support our ES Community members receive as they work to build and grow their small businesses,” added Williams. “With this webinar taking place so close to Halloween, we decided to give it the title, Start Your Own Trucking Business: All Treats & No Tricks. Along with having some fun with the seasonal theme, everyone who joins us for the webinar will be able to see that the programs and opportunities from ES are real. There are no tricks or surprises. We are focused on helping everyone who joins the ES Community to maximize their Success In Trucking.”

ES is proud to have Stoops Freightliner serve as the Title Sponsor for the IN-SITE 2021 Series.
