There’s never been a more controversial time within the trucking industry. Drivers are frustrated over numerous issues and have endless questions. Many times they have no where to turn to ask for answers to their questions. This year at GATS, hosted by Real Women in Trucking, there will be a panel of attorneys ready to address driver concerns and questions. As time allows there will also be a Trucker Open forum to continue their conversations.
REAL Women in Trucking will have their 1st exhibit booth ( booth 8052) at the Great American Truck Show August 24-26, 2017 and GATS Center Stage Lady Trucker Discussion Panel thanks to the generosity of Craig Ackermann Esq. , founder of the law firm Ackermann & Tilajef,P.C
