Enterprise trucking fleets exist in an increasingly competitive landscape — but they also have more opportunities than ever before. As many fleets are adopting progressive technology strategies, we’ll examine the components of a successful enterprise fleet in FreightWaves’ Enterprise Fleet Summit on April 7.
Looking back, what were the most successful strategies to manage the 2020 volatility? Looking forward, what will the enterprise fleet landscape look like in future years?
This full-day free virtual summit will tackle the most pressing issues facing enterprise fleets today and the strategies to grow your fleet, your network, your customer base and your profit margins.
ANDREW LETO, CEO of Emerge, has seen success scaling multiple organizations in the freight industry. After returning from service in the U.S. Navy, he helped to found GlobalTranz, a software-driven third-party logistics company to help shippers better manage their freight. Following the sale of GlobalTranz, Leto founded 10-4 Systems, a company dedicated to freight tracking. It was sold in 2018, allowing him to direct attention towards creating a digital freight marketplace connecting shippers and carriers directly. With his brother Michael on board, Emerge is making waves throughout the freight industry.
