As we wrap up 2015 and head into the holidays, the busiest time of the year for our friends and customers in the trucking industry, we share a few highlights from the Georgia Motor Trucking Association's annual fleet expo.
The Used Truck Association expected big things in Dallas and the UTA 16th Annual Convention delivered. With a record number of 807 attendees and 90 exhibitors, it was the event’s biggest vendor participation and biggest attendance to date.
This year’s American Trucking Associations conference in Little Rock, Arkansas was one of the largest conferences ever held by ATA, with a sold out exhibit hall of 55 companies and more than 350 people in attendance.
Hosted by the Carolina Traffic and Transportation Club Team, the Logistics Insights Conference (LIFTCON) promotes the interests of transportation industry and provides opportunities for logistic professionals to network. This year’s conference contained compelling information regarding the expanding role Southeastern transportation facilities and companies are now playing in the national supply chain.
The 33rd annual Idealease meeting took place in Scottsdale, Arizona. Idealease, Inc., a nationally renowned commercial truck lease and rental company, celebrated this year’s event with the theme “ONE Idealease.” Dan Murphy, Idealease President and CEO, explained, “Our meeting includes a celebration of our success in 2015, our programs and growth plans for the coming year, and importantly, recognition of our top Idealease sales, service and management professionals who daily demonstrate our expertise, responsiveness and stability to our customers as ONE Idealease.”
As one of the proud sponsors of The North Carolina League of Transportation and Logistics Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC, we at Electric Guard Dog were there for the event.
