2016ES is Title Sponsor of the Expedite Expo 2016Announcement Date : Jan 9 , 2017
The Expedite Expo is the only show Expediter Services participates in throughout the year. And although attendance was somewhat soft (following freight trends and the Expo’s new location in Lexington, Kentucky) from previous years, the quality of attendees definitely lived up to expectations and the ES team was excited to meet and greet everyone who visited our booth, as well as our Expediter Truck Sales exhibit in the Manchester parking lot.
We had the opportunity to share the solutions of tried-and-true programs created to make Independent Contractors, Owner Operators and Fleet Owners more efficient and profitable — regardless of the road ahead.
We also enjoyed an exclusive private dinner at the annual EGG at the Expo, where we said hello to those we know, and got to know those we don’t.
We’re looking forward to attending next year’s show as well!

2016Success in Trucking Website LaunchesAnnouncement Date : Jan 5 , 2017
In the fall of 2016, ES launched SuccessInTrucking.com — a platform focused on expanding the possibilities for truck ownership with a program that offers access to financing at favorable rates and equipment from the leading truck manufacturers in the industry. As we launch SuccessInTrucking.com, the ES Network will be broadening our operation with a proven system that can assist professional drivers in their quest for independence and truck ownership while also introducing new generations to the tremendous earnings potential that exists in the trucking industry.
Over the past decade, Expediter Services and the ES Network has set the standard for offering opportunities for developing reliable, quality owner-operator teams for the expedited market. We will now be bringing the same driver-focused approach and strong infrastructure to the general trucking market, offering ownership opportunities with solid growth.
We feel quite confident that the programs we have in place can appeal to a broad spectrum of people, including ex-military personnel seeking a career that utilizes many of the disciplines and organizational skills that can be found in the service. It can also be a great fit for entrepreneurs – men and women of all ages — who have a desire to travel while running their own business.
SucessInTrucking.com and the ES Network are also looking forward to working with carriers throughout the trucking industry in the effort to bring new drivers into the market as owner-operators – increasing the availability of non-asset capacity that can be utilized in a variety of team transit
