The Great American Trucking Show (GATS) Event Round-Up


The BigRoad team hit the road bright and early to make the LONG drive down to Dallas, Texas for The Great American Trucking Show (GATS). As always this show was a great opportunity for us to catch-up with our customers and teach the industry about how BigRoad helps drivers and fleets be safer, more efficient, and save money.

Welcome to Texas Y’All! 

IMG_4489_1_1.jpgRepresenting BigRoad at the event we
had: Matt Malcolm (BigRoad’s newest team member) from Support, Colin Lumb from Sales, and myself (Alicia Bedard) from Marketing.

BigRoad CEO & Co-Founder Terry Frey came down on Thursday afternoon. This was the first time that Matt and I had been to
Texas and we’ll definitely be back! Colin attended the show last year and was eager
to go again this year!

That’s a Very Bright Orange Truck In Your Booth!


The BigRoad truck is the highlight of our tradeshow booth. Not only is it extremely comfortable to drive across the country, it’s so bright that you can’t miss it! We had a number of our BigRoad users come up to see the truck in-person and catch-up with BigRoad staff.

GATS_BalloonSign-221829-edited.jpgWe also had the opportunity to educate drivers and fleet operators on the upcoming ELD Mandate and why BigRoad’s DashLink ELD is the easiest and most affordable option out there! We had a lot of great conversations and are looking forward to getting people set-up with a live demo and free 30-day trial

A couple of special mentions: Sierra Sugar for making the time to stop by and say hi even with her hectic schedule, Samuel for the excellent dinner recommendation (Mi Cocina = amazing Mexican food), and Vern for keeping us laughing during the entire show!

NASTC & BigRoad Presentation

BigRoad_TerryPresentation.jpgBigRoad teamed up with one of our partners, The National Association of Small Trucking Companies (NASTC), to deliver a presentation on why small fleets should get onboard with electronic logging and electronic logging devices (ELDs) now.

Complete coverage of the presentation, including an audio clip of NASTC President David Owen addressing attendees, can be found on the Overdrive website.
