Did you catch our latest live webinar event highlighting the opportunities with one of our partner carriers in the ES Community?

During our March 24th webinar, ES placed the spotlight on Panther Premium Logistics, a Service of ArcBest. The replay of our IN-SITE 2021 Start Your Own Trucking Business: Where The Rubber Meets The Road Series is now available for you to access on demand. We have made it where you can watch the webinar on your schedule.

While highlighting the opportunities available through Panther Premium and how you can get started on your path to truck ownership with ES, this edition of our webinar series focused on the key considerations owner-operators, independent contractors and aspiring entrepreneurs should review during the carrier recruiting process.

Cory Robertson, a manager on the ground floor of fleet recruiting with Panther Premium Logistics, served on our expert panel. Cory was joined on the panel by David Withers and Meghan Turner from Expediter Services. Withers is the Senior Director of Operations for ES, while Meghan serves as the Director of Recruiting for the company.

The panel discussion for this edition of the IN-SITE 2021 webinar series was 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 also serves as a host on SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio Channel 146, and she put her on-air expertise to work in leading a very interesting and informative discussion. One of the points viewers of the webinar will hear in detail is the commitment by ES and Panther Premium Logistics to position the members of the ES Community for real success in trucking when the rubber meets the road.
