Ask The Trucker

Raising the Standards of the Trucking Industry


Trucker App Well Received at GATS


Trucker BoothThe 2009 Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas came to a close yesterday but there was a lot of fun and informative works that took place during the three day event.  Our booth for “Trucker” – the world’s first iPhone application for the trucking industry, was well received and Donna did a great job with the much appreciative help and assistance of Trucker Desiree.

Also on hand, and giving much of his time in helping out was Daniel Audet of The Truck Star.   We will be posting more pictures and stories from the event and would like to thank everyone for their help during the event.  It was a big three days but well worth the time and effort.   Donna also finally got to meet the Rivenburgs and family of Jason’s Law, and we will be sharing all the pictures as they come in, right here on our blog.

Check back later, as there will be more posts coming about the GATS event of 2009.
