The 2020 school year has begun!

The COVID-19 virus may have provided a future view to the trade show industry. The global health crisis has caused hundreds of conferences, meetings, and trade shows to be postponed or cancelled this year. As a result of CDC social distance guidelines, the traditional in person conference may be changed forever. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), announced recently that their annual Trucking Safety Summit will be configured to a virtual meeting through GoToWebinar. Many others will be utilizing technology as the alternative method to communicate ideas, stay connected with members, and enable vendors to present their products and services by way of the computer screen.
We will soon be celebrating the 244th anniversary of the founding of the United States of America. On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed and the birth of the new nation took place in Philadelphia. Citizens across the country have celebrated the holiday ever since with parades, backyard barbecues, family picnics, and usually finish the evening watching elaborate firework displays that would light up the skies.
Many trucking companies utilize fuel cards as a part of their business, whether it be for gasoline, diesel fuel or various fuel-related purchases. Fuel cards can also be utilized to pay for vehicle maintenance and other expenses. They are unique due to the comprehensive reporting that accompanies their use. Fleet owners receive real time reports and can set purchase restrictions helping them stay informed of business-related expenses.
