Each year, leading industry executives come together in Athens, Georgia to develop and share strategies toward sustained and increased profitability across the North American trucking industry. Over the past two and half decades, the Terry College has developed an unmatched network of leading trucking executives and industry experts who continue to return year after year because of the high quality of practical and relevant information delivered. For those who join us each year, the value is clear. TPS attendees return to their companies empowered to implement leading practices that drive revenue, enhance efficiency, and create a working environment where all employees can be successful.

 Over the years, I have attended

the Trucking Profitability Strategies Conference many times. I have always been impressed by the number of trucking industry leaders who attend and participate. It is a "no-nonsense" approach that strikes at the very heart of the most important issues affecting the industry. I would strongly recommend attendance to anyone in trucking.
