“The ATA’s Economic Summit is far more comprehensive than other summits or conferences that I go to. They are mainly related to trucking or transportation and don’t give you as broad of a view and understanding of issues like the retail sector or construction and how it can impact on trucking. You get that broad view at the Economic Summit.”

Scott Willert , President, America's Service Line
