Great American Trucking Show

The Great American Trucking Show is an annual exhibition where over 50,000 registered attendees explore what the trucking industry has to offer. With over 500 exhibitors, a health and wellness pavilion, discovery pavilion, and seminars taking place throughout each day, there was a lot to see and do!

1,400 Miles on the Road 
In true BigRoad fashion, the team jumped in the BigRoad truck to drive down to Dallas, Texas. The team hit the road at 6AM to begin the 1,400 mile drive which they did over two days with three drivers. 

The BigRoad Team with the BigRoad Truck

You might have noticed something different about the BigRoad truck…it got a new wrap! Thanks to Steve over at Creative Edge Signs and Graphics, we looked awesome rolling down the 401 to I-70.

The BigRoad Booth

It was a busy three days at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center. With only four months until the electronic logging
device (ELD) mandate, the team educated attendees and answered questions about the upcoming mandate.

People stopped by to see demos of our ELD mandate compliance solution (DashLink ELD), our electronic logbook (the BigRoad Mobile App), and our fleet management solution (the BigRoad Web App).

The BigRoad Referral Program

We also give your friend a $25 reward for becoming a new customer! The team had a steady stream of people registering to participate and sharing BigRoad with their friends – like Sierra Sugar

Laughing In the Bathroom
Did you notice a lot of people were laughing when they left the bathrooms? That’s because BigRoad had some pretty funny advertisements in there! Didn’t get a chance to take a look? Here is one of the ads we put up on the mirrors to spread the word about our BigRoad Referral Program.
