‘Drilling Deep’: From the TCA meeting, passing the torch to a new generation of leaders

In this week’s “Drilling Deep” podcast, host John Kingston sits down with Dave Heller of the Truckload Carriers Association at the TCA’s annual meeting in the Orlando, Florida, area.

Dave will talk about that and what else he heard at the biggest meeting of the truckload sector.
