Live Session: Tuesday, August 25, 2020, 2:00 p.m. EDT
ES is pleased to present the second edition in our IN-SITE 2020 Webinar Series. Just as we did in the IN-SITE 2020 debut webinar, we will once again be exploring the many aspects of trucking in the COVID-19 era. Our second session in the IN-SITE 2020 Webinar Series will focus on partnering with the right motor carrier.
The live broadcast of the webinar will take place on Tuesday, August 25th at 2:00 p.m. EDT. The online replay for the second webinar in the IN-SITE 2020 Webinar Series will be available approximately two hours following the conclusion of the live event. Both the live event and replay are free to all registrants.
Our August 25th webinar will focus on how the partner carriers in the ES Community have adjusted to the challenges the industry has encountered so far in the COVID-19 era. The live session is scheduled to run for one hour.
Just as we did for our series debut in July, ES has once again assembled an expert panel that will be participating in our August edition of the webinar. ES will be taking a slightly different approach in working with our panel during the August live event. Rather than ask our experts to share their insights through a traditional presentation format, our Partnering With The Right Motor Carrier webinar will be a Q&A session.
Leah Shaver, the President and CEO of the National Transportation Institute, will serve as our moderator for the discussion with our carrier partners. 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, highlighting how the partner carriers in the ES Community are moving forward with their operations and meeting the needs of the professional drivers in their respective fleets.
The August 25th webinar hosted by ES will include participation from FedEx Custom Critical, Forward Air and Panther Premium, a Service of ArcBest. All three motor carriers have established long relationships with ES and the ES Community. The motor carrier panelists will be Nick Burch, the Director of Recruiting for Panther Premium, and Ryan Gilliam, the Vice President of Talent for Forward Air, and Zak Mattocks, Managing Director of Operations for FedEx Custom Critical. ES President Jason Williams and Jeff Tacker, the Chief Operating Officer of ES, will also be joining the panel discussion for the August webinar.
For this session in the webinar series, we will be focusing a portion of this discussion on how these partner carriers are currently working with owner-operators and independent contract drivers. In addition, this session will cover the importance of having non-asset capacity options in today’s trucking market. Our expert panel will be examining the challenges and opportunities now found within the COVID-19 era for those professional drivers who are considering becoming owner-operators.
ES is proud to have Stoops Freightliner serve as the Title Sponsor for the IN-SITE 2020 Series. To register for our August 25th live webinar event, Trucking In The COVID-19 Era: Partnering with the Right Motor Carrier, please click here.
