“The trucking landscape is perhaps one of the most interesting and complex industries – one that is ripe for innovation,” commented host Jeremy Reymer. “We’re thrilled to have this incredible platform, in partnership with FreightWaves, to highlight some of the movers and shakers in the industry who are truly making a difference in recruiting and retaining qualified truck drivers. My hope for this show is that we challenge our audience to think bigger, take action, and invest in their drivers.”
