Expedite Expo, to be held July 24 and 25 in at the Roberts Convention Center in Wilmington, Ohio, is the only trade event focused exclusively on the expedited trucking industry.
Launched in 2001, expo has experienced a steady growth in exhibitors and attendees from across the U.S. and Canada, and offers the opportunity to learn about the newest trucks, career opportunities and products geared specifically to owner operators and drivers of medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
The expo includes several workshops led by industry experts on how to spec a truck, choose the right carrier, reduce costs, improve profits and save time. It is also meant to be an opportunity for folks to network and exchange ideas and compare notes.
Here’s what’s happening at Expedite Expo
