Truck World Event Recap


The BigRoad team spent last week in Mississauga, Ontario for Truck World 2016 – Canada’s National Truck Show! Known as the meeting place for Canadian trucking, transportation, supply chain, distribution, and logistics, Truck World brought together thousands of trucking enthusiasts…and BigRoad was excited to be part of the action! 

A Who’s Who of Canadian Trucking
Screen_Shot_2016-04-18_at_11.41.12_AM.pngWe weren’t really sure what to expect in terms of
traffic to our booth – and were we ever surprised! It seemed like we had non-stop visitors from early Thursday morning to late Saturday afternoon (despite the beautiful weather outside). Barclay and I had the opportunity to meet a number of current BigRoad customers – we always enjoy putting a face to the
name (especially @CrazyCanuckDave)! 

What’s on the Mind of Canadian Truckers
20160415_102142.jpgDuring the event we focused on educating Canadian drivers on what BigRoad does, how we can help improve operations with the BigRoad Mobile App and BigRoad Web App, and what they can expect if Canada follows the United States and mandates the use of electronic logging devices (ELDs). 

Prior to the event, I wrote a blog on what Canadian drivers need to know if ELDs do come
to Canada
. I encourage you to give it a read! Our CEO Terry Frey also hosted a webinar last week on ELD – The Path to Compliance. During the webinar Terry goes into detail on the mandate, how it’s going to impact the truck industry, and the steps that you need to take to ensure that you get onboard with a solution provider that can meet your needs.
