    Ta/Petro Citizens Award

    A few days ago I got a phone call from TA/Petro telling me that I had been nominated twice for the TA/Petro Citizens Award. I was in tears as this is a honor for me and a total shock. I do a lot of charity work that I try to keep it private, but TA/Petro knew everything. It's an honor to me...

    Successful Expediters

    Over the years I have seen many posts in regards to being a Successful Expediter. You have to ask yourself, what is considered to be successful in this business? Is it how much income one does? Is it how many loads you take? Is it it how many trucks you own? Is it how many of whatever you can...

Is it...
