Great Listen

A great way to start the week getting us enthused to get back out there! Great information. I just finished listening to My20 ELD guys and once again learn more about our industry. I’m sure it’s a lot of work each week, Jared and Co., but worth every minute!

Bulkloads Podcast

Shortly after I started hauling bulk freight, I discovered the Bulkloads Podcast.

This podcast has been outstanding. A variety of topics are discussed pertaining to the bulk transportation industry. I have gained a lot of knowledge on those topics and I’m glad I found it.

Thank you Bulkloads for what y’all do.
