Our Top Stories of 2018
by Erika Nieman | December 10, 2018
Here we are again. It’s December and we’re busy preparing for 2019.
2018 was a busy year in the trucking industry. We saw the ELD requirement and enforcement period come into effect. Freight rates and fuel prices fluctuated. Natural disasters struck. The one constant through all the twists and turns is that you moved freight. Truck drivers still got behind the wheels of their trucks and kept everything going.
Last year, we made a commitment to dive deeper into the trucking business and what makes companies successful.
Diving into the Details
We help a lot of trucking companies get started. In that process, there are so many details these entrepreneurs need to learn. We dug into a few of those frequently asked questions.
Successful Trucking Companies
We work with some great people. These men and women put in a lot of work to succeed and grow. This year, we spoke with a few of our factoring clients to learn their stories and how they are running successful trucking companies!
Here Come ELDs
It really happened. ELDs are now a requirement for most motor carriers. This time last year, everyone was scrambling to find out what they needed to do to be compliant as strict enforcement approached.
A Trucking Company Giving Back
In one of our favorite stories of the year, we spoke with Apex client Nick Varkentin, CEO at Kingdom Truck Lines in California. Varkentin goes on mission trips every year to provide resources, assistance, and compassion for people in need.
