Remembering fellow expedite people.

Tonight I was talking to a fellow fleet owner about a way to remember and honor the people that contributed to Expediting over the years. Geo has said many times, "The Expediters Hall of Fame". Well, thats a great idea, but getting people to agree on things is hard.

I would like new people in this business to see and know some of the great people that help make Expediting what it is today. Jeff Jenson is the first person that always comes to mind, as Jeff kept everyone up on the things that was going on in the world of Expediting with his writings in Expedite Now magazine.

Dan Schutz is another person along with Don Bentz that help change the way expedite trucks was built back many years ago. Things have changed so much since 1995 when I started. Roberts Express is now FedEx Custom Critcal.

The Expo has outgrown two locations and is now in Lexington, Ky at the Lexington Convention Center. We have Lawrence McCord to thank for that. I just wish we could honor these people in some way for all the things they have done to help expediting what it is today.

Please give your thoughts. So many people that I would love to give an award to. Everyone loves to be remembered.
