"I’ve attended the Trucking Profitability Strategies conference throughout my career and I continue to come back because it’s a place to come together with other folks in the industry. It’s a place you can let your guard down, talk about things you have in common, the challenges you face. People are willing to share here, and I think that’s the unique difference.”
