March is upon us, and that means it’s time for the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS).

We’re heading to Louisville, Kentucky for MATS, the trucking industry’s biggest trade show with over 70,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors from March 28-30.

Taking place at the 1.2 million-square-foot Kentucky Exposition Center, MATS attendees will be able to enjoy free live music, check out the newest big rigs on the market and explore the latest offerings from the top vendors in the trucking industry.

“The Mid-America Trucking Show is a great event that gives us the opportunity to connect in-person with our carriers from all over the country and receive feedback on what is working and where we can improve,” said Nikhil Jaipuria, director of product at Convoy. “It also allows us to learn more about the latest trends and services that carriers rely on.”

Convoy CEO Dan Lewis will host a moderated discussion with a panel of shippers including Karen Stetner, senior supply chain manager at Garick LLC, John Reese, director of logistics and transportation at Truco Enterprises and Alexandra Alegria, Director of Supply Chain and Logistics at Waiakea. This discussion will give attendees a look into how shippers view their relationships with carriers and truck drivers. “Inside the Mind of a Shipper: What shippers are doing to help trucking companies” will be held on Friday, March 29 at 10 a.m. ET in room B104 in the South Wing Concourse.

Attendees will leave this session with firsthand knowledge of how shippers are working to improve the experience that trucking companies have hauling their freight. From reliability and responsiveness to the ability to troubleshoot during a job, discover what the best partnerships look like and how they work for both sides.

Hope to see you there! #TruckYeah
